Scouting Report
Is ideally built for the catching position. Is a terrific game caller, pitch framer and handler of a pitching staff. Defensively, he is very good overall. Displays some home-run power, too. Also, he can play first base if required. Does not hit with nearly enough consistency to be an impact offensive catcher in the big leagues, but his receiving skills are his meal ticket anyway.
Long Range Potential: Quality, defense-first catcher.
