Scouting Report
Assets: Supremely athletic and quick behind the plate, he blocks pitches with aplomb and owns a cannon for an arm. Also calls a pretty good game and owns solid overall receiving skills. His golden arm has led to a stint on the mound.
Flaws: Can he hit enough to be an everyday player? The jury is out, since he does not always have a good approach at the dish. Chases a lot of pitches and does not walk enough. As a pitcher, he is obviously extremely raw on the bump.
Career Potential: Athletic catcher, late-blooming reliever with supreme versatility.
