Scouting Report

AssetsIs a good game-caller with plenty of leadership skills behind the plate. Knows how to handle a pitching staff, even at the big-league level. Has good pedigree.
FlawsIsn't much of a hitter, even in minor-league baseball, so he's not everyday catching material at the big-league level. Also lacks power.
Career potentialJourneyman backup catcher.
