Scouting Report

AssetsHas a keen eye at the plate and plenty of home-run power for a catcher--including home-run power. His left-handed bat is a bonus behind the plate.
FlawsNeeds to prove he can hit left-handed pitching with consistency, as well as reduce the number of strikeouts he racks up, in order to maximize production.
Career potentialSolid catcher with a little upside.
