Tanner is an athletic, R/R catcher who continues to show well and did so again at the Pre-Season All-America Tournament. Behind the dish, he sits in well with athletic actions and flexion. He presents a low target, tracks pitches into a soft mitt and frames well. Quick lateral actions allow up to body/center pitches in the dirt off of his chest. Transfer to throw is clean as he replaces his feet well, putting accurate throws on the bag. Offensively, this righty displays an athletic setup with an aggressive approach. He swings with intent, squares the ball up and has pop to his pull-side (exit velo = 82 mph). He is a leadoff type of hitter with the ability to see pitches and a knack for getting the barrel on the ball (collecting a 2B, a 1B and 2 RBI's at the event). Tanner also showed his versatility with his ability to compete on the mound. He has an effective 3-pitch mix (FB, CB, CH) in which he uses to pound the zone with strikes. He is quick to the plate and doesn't give hitters time to get settled. FB cracks the mitt at 80 mph with good arm side run. CB has 11/5 shape with sharp/late action and CH has some run, complimenting his FB well. Dominguez is a gamer who plays hard and has the tools that will translate into the next level.
