Scouting Report

AssetsOwns the ideal frame for a catcher: stocky with a very strong lower base. Calls a good game and owns plenty of experience in the pro ranks.
FlawsIs not a patient hitter at all, and he generally struggles to hit with consistency. Lacks power, too, so he is not ideal to play over long stretches.
Career potentialJourneyman backup catcher.
