Scouting Report
Assets: Has very good plate discipline, patience and sound overall batting instincts. Will often walk more than he strikes out. Can get red-hot with the bat for long stretches. Is a versatile fielder.
Flaws: Is not a great defensive catcher or game-caller, plus concussions ended his catching career. Doesn't have huge power. Lefty pitchers give him trouble more trouble, so he profiles more as a platoon player.
Career Potential: Solid left-handed batter with great patience.
