Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 40 | Power: 55 | Run: 20 | Arm: 55 | Field: 50 | Overall: 40

Though Haase was Michigan's best prep position player in 2011, the Indians still surprised a lot of clubs by giving him an over-slot $580,000 bonus in the seventh round to buy him away from an Ohio State commitment. He didn't catch regularly for his high school team and took several years to become an acceptable defender behind the plate. His stock began to rise when he won MVP honors in the Double-A Eastern League playoffs in 2016, and he totaled 47 homers in the upper Minors the next two years before making his big league debut last September.

Haase has an all-or-nothing approach at the plate. He's going to swing and miss and he rarely walks, but the loft and strength in his right-handed swing give him tremendous power when he connects. Like most catchers, he offers little value on the bases.

Haase has made himself into a decent receiver and scores well in Cleveland's framing metrics. He also has improved the quickness and accuracy of his throws, leading the Triple-A International League by throwing out 49 percent of basestealers in 2018. He doesn't project as a regular but could be useful as a slugging backup who's capable behind the plate.
