    Maybe I’m being a little harsh, but T. Stephenson has been one of the biggest misses for me. Not that I’m giving up on him or he’s reach his ceiling, just that I thought he had a chance to be a 25-30 homer catcher. I remember he was considered for number one pick for a second.

      injuries i think slowed him down a little bit. He still only 22 in AA for a Catcher.
      I think he is on the right Path. Catchers usually take Longer to Develop anyway.
      Not sure about the Power but he is Playing in a Pitcher League. FSL is a tough League.
      Some Highly Rated Prospects are Performing Great in that same League.
      Not to many are though. Inside the Numbers is the Key to that League.

        He isn’t playing in the Florida State League.

        Thanks Doug i put the wrong league by mistake. I think still a tough league overall though plays in though.

        I remember the development process for Devin Mesoraco, which did not include the injuries and Tyler is on par, if not better in some ways.

    • Norwood Nate

      It’s funny the difference of perspectives people can have. I’m really pleased with Stephenson’s progression especially this season. I feel he’s having a good year making the jump to AA and even out performing higher rated prospects. Offense typically develops a bit slower for catchers because there’s so much focus on honing their skills behind the plate and learning to work with different pitchers. In my opinion his stock is up.

    It appears to me that Tyler andChris Okey are currently on a path to be the Reds catchers in 2021. Stephenson is developing some power and is still growing. In GABP he will be just fine and Okey is finally starting to hit at AA. If they both stay helathy I think this is a position well taken care of.

    • RedsKoolAidDrinker

      Somewhere, maybe here, I read that Okey had long been dealing with an injury. Can anyone verify that as well as the length and extent of that? Is he now 100% or will he ever be?

        I don’t know what it was that you read, so I can’t confirm or deny anything about that. But in 2017 he broke his hamate bone in spring training and told no one, playing with the issue all year before having surgery to have it removed.
