Scouting Report
Is a good hitter with good pitch recognition who usually sports a solid walk/strikeout ratio. Also displays some home-run pop in his bat. Can both catch and play in the outfield. As a catcher, he still needs more work on the finer points of the position in order to be successful in MLB (and not force a permanent move to the outfield). Lacks some consistency.
Long Range Potential: Solid, versatile catcher with upside.
