Scouting Report

AssetsIs a born leader. A consummate defensive catcher: throws out runners with ease, is great with the glove and handles pitchers very well. Has developed into a very good contact hitter with pop, too. Also runs the bases well.
FlawsDoesn't above-average home-run power at the plate for a starting catcher. Can go into prolonged hitting funks, as well, though that's not uncommon for a backstop who logs a ton of innings. Can wear down with overuse.
Career potentialElite all-round catcher and leader.
