Baldwin has been in the sox system for quite some time and while in the past he would split time between 3b and C, he is exclusively a catcher this year. Baldwin is known for having some pop in his bat and if he can stick behind the plate, it could play up. Very much a free swinger, he is decent making contact but won't draw many walks. This year his power seems to have emerged. There isn't much out there on Roldani or his defense. Him not playing 3b this year could simply be a function of Bobby Dalbec and not his skills at Catcher.

He's currently slashing .253/.290/.540 in 93 PA with 5bb/17K.

Roldani Baldwin hit his 9th HR of the year last night. Last 36 games, 150 PA: .322/.349/.552 with 7 HRs, 6bb/28k.
He is now slashing .291/.322/.522 for the year at Greenville in 215 PA. 10bb/40k. He's not exactly young at 21 but given he is a catcher, I'm surprised this guy doesn't get more love.
