Scouting Report
Is a very good hitter for a catcher, and is adept at using the whole field in his approach to hitting. Also owns a projectable catchers' frame and sound receiving skills. Does not have enough home-run power to be considered an everyday catcher, and his throwing arm is not great either. Needs to add more bulk for better stamina, too.
Long Range Potential: Backup catcher.
