Scouting Report

AssetsCalls a good game and displays good run-producing ability at the minor-league level. In the big leagues, he can get hot with the bat and also serve as backup catcher.
FlawsLacks offensive consistency and is too streaky at the dish, which hurts his ability to carve out more at-bats for himself in the bigs. Also, his walk:strikeout ratio isn't great.
Career potentialJourneyman catcher.
