Scouting Report
Assets: Has a keen eye at the plate and plenty of home-run power for a catcher--including home-run power. His left-handed bat is a bonus behind the plate.
Flaws: Does not hit left-handed pitching with consistency in the big leagues. Must reduce the number of strikeouts he racks up to maximize MLB production.
Career Potential: Veteran catcher.
