Scouting Report

AssetsHas a very good bat and surprising speed for a catcher. Owns a cannon arm behind the plate that's one of the strongest in the game. Can go on significant hot streaks with the bat.
FlawsIs a little too aggressive at the plate and has little patience for walks, making him strikeout-prone and too streaky with the bat. Makes his share of errors behind the dish.
Career potentialAthletic veteran catcher.
