Scouting Report
Has tremendous size for the catching position, and generates a lot of power at the plate when he connects. Has improved his game-calling skills over time. Is solid vs. Left-handed pitching. Is not a good hitter for average and strikes out too much in the big leagues. Must continue to work on his footwork and receiving skills behind the plate, since he is still a bit stiff back there.
Long Range Potential: Backup catcher.
