Scouting Report
Assets: Is a good all-round package at the catching position: can hit for power and average, while showing good patience at the dish. Has also improved his game-calling skills. A hard-working player, he is driven to improve.
Flaws: Can be quite streaky with the bat. While a good power hitter, he lacks consistency in that department. Struggles at times to throw base-runners out. Injuries can be (and have been) an issue for him.
Career Potential: Solid catcher, when healthy.
