Scouting Report
Formerly a position player, he is a good athlete with a good bat (he can even switch-hit, which adds a lot of value from the catching position). Owns a smooth stroke and good approach at the dish. Must continue to improve his catching, game-calling and leadership skills in order to become a first-string catcher in the bigs. Also, his arm is only average and may get run on consistently.
Long Range Potential: Backup catcher.
