Scouting Report

AssetsIs an imposing presence (as both a hitter and catcher). Owns a superb batting eye with good power, suggesting he can be an elite switch-hitter. Makes very few mistakes with his glove.
FlawsNeeds some more work at throwing runners out. Bats better from the left side than the right, so more improvement is needed here. Could take more walks as a hitter.
Career potentialExcellent all-round catcher with good upside.
