Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 40 | Power: 45 | Run: 40 | Arm: 55 | Field: 55 | Overall: 45

Elk Grove (Calif.) has produced 11 big leaguers, most notably Buck Martinez, and Nunez's teammates there included Astros third baseman J.D. Davis, future first-round picks Dylan Carlson and Derek Hill, and slugging Blue Jays prospect Rowdy Tellez. The Rockies signed Nunez for an above-slot $800,000 as a 2013 sixth-rounder and shifted him from middle infielder to catcher after his pro debut. The transition behind the plate has gone well but his offensive numbers have declined each year since he moved behind the plate.

With soft hands and more quickness than most catchers, Nunez has steadily improved into a solid receiver. He has arm strength to match and has gotten better with his transfer and accuracy. He impresses with his leadership skills as well, and there's no doubt that he'll be able to catch at the big league level.

Whether he'll be able to hit is another question after he slid to .202/.335/.354 in Double-A last year, then went 4-for-44 in the Arizona Fall League. He has a nice left-handed stroke, the raw power to hit 15 homers per year and some patience, so there's hope. While he doesn't swing and miss excessively, pitchers goad him into a lot of weak contact to the opposite field.
