Scouting Report
Assets: Is an imposing presence (as both a hitter and catcher). Owns a superb batting eye with good power, suggesting he can be an elite switch-hitter. Makes very few mistakes with his glove.
Flaws: Needs some more work at throwing runners out. Elbow issues don't help. Bats better from the left side than the right, so more improvement is needed there. Could take more walks as a hitter.
Career Potential: Excellent all-around catcher, when healthy.
