Scouting Report
Assets: Possesses major home-run power with the bat (for a catcher). Produces a solid number of doubles and RBI per at-bat. Is a decent game-caller and leader behind the plate.
Flaws: Has holes in his swing, leading to a lot of strikeouts and low batting averages. Has also declined somewhat defensively over time and struggles to throw runners out.
Career Potential: Veteran backup catcher.
