Scouting Report

AssetsAthletic, he's an excellent defensive backstop. Is extremely patient as a hitter and has the tools to post an excellent on-base percentage, a good batting average and solid RBI totals.
FlawsFor a big guy (6-3, 220 pounds), he doesn't display that much power at the plate. Needs to put it all together as a hitter at the big-league level, since he lacks consistency.
Career potentialSolid veteran catcher.
