Carter Jensen, a prep catcher from Missouri, is an offensive-first catcher who has improved his defensive skills over the last year. Jensen is a well-regarded MLB draft prospect that scouts believe will hear his name called in the early rounds of July’s draft.
Jensen, a left-handed hitter, exhibits a mature approach at the plate and has a quick and compact swing. He also hits the ball with authority and uses all parts of the field. Defensively, he has above-average arm strength.
