Scouting Report
Assets: Intense, smart and focused behind the plate, he also makes good contact with the bat, hits with some pop and is decent in the clutch. Usually guides pitchers very well.
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 at the dish.
Career Potential: Solid veteran catcher.
