Scouting Report

AssetsBrings a consistent run-producing bat to the lineup, with some clutch ability. Calls a pretty good game behind the dish and has leadership qualities. Can play first base, too.
FlawsIs increasingly injury-prone as he gets older, and can also be run on more and more with advanced age. Is not a great defensive asset at first base.
Career potentialVeteran catcher.
