Scouting Report

AssetsA good athlete for a catcher, he boasts a very live bat. Also shows solid mobility behind the plate. His home-run prowess is good for a backstop. Can hit lefties fairly well.
FlawsMakes a lot of mental mistakes behind the dish. Doesn't anticipate base-stealers well enough (as he's run on too easily), and his game-calling skills are only average.
Career potentialSolid left-hand-hitting catcher.
