Scouting Report

AssetsWas a legitimate switch-hitting power bat and a natural leader. In the clutch, he was money at the plate. Could call a good game and had the trust of his pitchers.
FlawsYears of overuse behind the plate led to a sharp decline in his catching skills over time. Had trouble adjusting to the DH role late in his career.
Career potentialQuality switch-hitting catcher and leader.
