Scouting Report

AssetsA great defensive catcher with an ideal frame for the position, he is also adept at hitting for average at the dish. Will also draw his share of walks. Has a great throwing arm.
FlawsLacks consistency, even in terms of his defense. Doesn't have a lot of home-run power, which limits his upside as a hitter. Needs to focus better, since he lacks concentration.
Career potentialTalented catcher with some upside.
