Scouting Report
Assets: Intense, smart, and focused behind the plate and at it. Makes good contact with the bat, hits with some pop, and bats well in the clutch. Guards the plate like a bodyguard.
Flaws: His trademark intensity sometimes gets the better of him. Can be run on easily. Would produce more runs and hit for even better average if he were more patient with the bat.
Career Potential: Solid veteran catcher.
