2021 Dynasty Baseball Prospect Profile: Shea Langeliers

on

Welcome back to our 2021 Dynasty Baseball Prospect Profile, where this week’s topic is Shea Langeliers. Langeliers is a solid catcher on both the offensive and defensive end. The Atlanta Braves drafted Langeliers with the 9th overall pick in 2019. Langeliers measures in at 6-foot, 205 lbs.

Langeliers has a solid floor because of his defense, but he has been killing it with his bat this MiLB season. He will likely be in a future platoon with William Contreras. Langeliers is light years ahead of Contreras on the defensive end, so Shea could get the majority of at-bats in the platoon.

Hit Tool

Langeliers has about an average hit tool. He likely won’t hit for a consistently high batting average, but he will get on base at a good rate. Due to Langeliers good eye and plate discipline, Shea will likely have a good on-base percentage going forward.

Currently this minor league season, Langeliers has a BB% of 14.9% and a K% of 24.5%. His batting average is .273 while his on-base percentage is .404.

Power

Shea has above-average power. This minor league season, he has launched 7 home runs with 13 RBIs. Langeliers OPS is 1.002, and his ISO is .325. Shea’s wOBA is .441 and his wRC+ is 178.

He should maintain consistent power, but similar to any catcher, it will depend on playing time. Langeliers is a catcher to keep your eye on in the future.

Speed

Shea Langeliers has below-average speed. I doubt he will ever steal 10 bases in any season, as his speed is just that poor. Luckily, catchers do not need speed. He has 0 stolen bases so far in his Minor League career.
