Scouting Report
An athletic catcher, he displays an excellent throwing arm and plenty of receiving skills. Works well with pitchers and has leadership qualities. A switch-hitter, he owns great knowledge of the strike zone and plenty of plate patience. Lacks optimum home-run power and is also a bit inconsistent as a hitter, overall.
Long Range Potential: Backup catcher.
