Scouting Report
Brings a big frame and excellent athleticism to the catching position. Shows good instincts as a hitter, complete with power and the ability to draw walks. Needs to show he can become a more consistent hitter for average (and cut down on his gaudy strikeout totals). Injuries are also a concern with him.
Long Range Potential: Solid catcher.
