Position: Catcher
Bats: Right, Throws: Right
Height: 6' 0", Weight: 220 lb.

Born: March 16, 1991 in Marietta, Georgia, US (Age 23.130)
High School: Walton HS (Marietta, GA)
School: Clemson University (Clemson, SC)
Drafted by the Washington Nationals in the 5th round of the 2012 MLB June Amateur Draft from Clemson University (Clemson, SC).

Currently playing at Hagerstown where through 62 games / 242 PAs he's put up a .331 / .359 / .525 slash line with 6HRs and 2 SBs.  Reports are that he's got a short, compact swing, and is someone to keep an eye on.  His ascension could be a large part of the reason why the Nats left Adrian Nieto unprotected in last year's Rule 5 draft.  He had TJ in early 2013 and appears to be fully recovered.
