Scouting Report
Assets: Boasts a fantastic eye at the plate with above-average 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: Must improve his footwork back behind the plate. Also needs to continue to work on commanding a pitching staff and calling a good game. Injuries are also an issue here.
Career Potential: Great offensive catcher with big upside.
