« Topic Start: April 10, 2014, 09:46:18 PM »
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 180
DOB: 7/20/2013
Signed: December 2010, Dominican Republic
Position: Catcher
Prospect rank: 8 (BP), 8 (MLB), 13 (Fangraphs), 16 (BA)

SAL 2013 Mid-Season All-Star

Named best defensive catcher in the Nationals system after the 2013 season.  Had a 40.2% caught stealing rate. 

Quote
Severino excels at controlling the running game, posting a 40 percent caught-stealing percentage with Class A Hagerstown in 2013. The 20-year-old native of the Dominican Republic is a long way from the Majors but has shown promise blocking and receiving pitches.

Ranked number one among catchers with at least 70 games at one level in assists per game and number nine in CS %.

Quote
The Nationals’ Pedro Severino (No. 1 with 1.32 A/G) recorded the second most assists in the minors, one behind Barnhart, but he led all catchers in assists of the non-caught stealing variety with an astounding 71 in 82 games at low Class A Hagerstown.

He is known to have a good work ethic, and the pitchers like throwing to him.
