Scouting Report / Bio: Big, physically strapping catcher with the type of tools you'd like in a backup. Colina has arm strength behind the plate, but could use better accuracy and footwork. At the plate, Colina can launch balls to the alley, but his swing is long and his ability to work the count could be better. It's doubtful he could hit consistently enough to start long term.
Future Outlook: MLB backup catcher
