Scouting Report
Assets: Is a quality receiver with soft hands and a strong throwing arm, making him a solid defensive catcher. At the dish, he has some untapped power and the ability to draw walks.
Flaws: Does not have natural hitting ability, so he will always struggle to keep his batting average respectable in Major League Baseball. Must improve his approach at the dish.
Career Potential: Solid catcher with upside.
