Scouting Report
Assets: A switch-hitter, he boasts good plate discipline and pretty good power. Calls a good game and provides leadership. Is versatile enough to also play first base if needed, mainly due to his huge frame.
Flaws: Is somewhat injury-prone. Must also smooth out the rough patches in his defensive ability, as well as improve in throwing out base-stealers. Needs to develop more consistency with the bat, as well.
Career Potential: Inconsistent switch-hitting catcher and leader.
