Scouting Report
Assets: Has good catch-and-throw skills. Calls a good game from behind the plate. Also displays a bit of pop in his bat. Is also capable of swapping a base with the element of surprise.
Flaws: Doesn't have a lot of raw talent as a hitter, nor is he a major home-run threat, so he will be somewhat offensively challenged at the highest level. Does not draw a lot of walks.
Career Potential: Backup catcher.
