Scouting Report

AssetsHas the ideal frame for the catching position--relatively short and stocky. Is a natural leader with good receiving skills. Overall, he defends his position well.
FlawsDoesn't hit with a lot of consistency, and he only possesses average power. That makes him a poor option to play every day in Major League Baseball.
Career potentialBackup catcher.
