Scouting Report
Assets: A natural leader behind the plate, he is a strong defensive catcher with a good arm and the ability to call a good game. Also displays good power with the bat.
Flaws: His home-run power comes at the expense of batting average and on-base percentage, since he's too much of a free swinger at the plate. Also strikes out too much.
Career Potential: Quality veteran backup catcher.
