Naylor will open the year with Low-A Lake County, MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
This isn't necessarily surprising, but it represents a vote of confidence from the Indians, as prep catching prospects are often promoted pretty slowly through the minors. Naylor hit .274/.381/.402 (126 wRC+) with two home runs and five steals in 33 games in the AZL last year. He should get most of his starts at catcher, but will likely continue to get the occassional start at third base.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
The younger brother of Josh Naylor, Bo has similar upside as a pure hitter (Josh is a career .284 hitter in the minors), but his ability to play catcher and third base puts much less pressure on his offense. Selected out of Ontario with the No. 27 overall pick in 2018, Naylor received an over-slot $2,578,137 bonus. The Indians primarily deployed him at catcher in the AZL, but he did get five starts at third base, so it seems they want to keep their options open. Naylor is a good athlete, which should serve him well behind the dish, and he has plenty of arm for the position, but like all prep catchers, he still has a lot of work to do as a framer and game caller. While Josh was drafted in the first round in 2015 on the strength of his huge raw power, Bo is seen as a hit-over-power prospect at this stage. His above-average speed led to five steals on six attempts in just 33 games, but he may slow down by the time he reaches the majors in 2022 or 2023.
