Scouting Report
Assets: Boasts a fantastic eye at the plate with good power and the ability to drive in plenty of runs. Doesn't strike out a lot, relative to his walks. Can also play first base.
Flaws: Injuries are an issue here, especially a devastating leg fracture, which has limited his long-range prospects behind the dish. Doesn't have as much value as a first sacker.
Career Potential: Great offensive catcher.
