Scouting Report
Assets: Is very athletic for a catcher. He's also intense and focused at the plate. Hits for average, while taking a lot of bases on balls. Can steal a few bags, too. Calls a great game behind the dish and is a leader.
Flaws: Can be streaky at the plate and behind it (especially in terms of home-run power and when trying to throw out base-stealers). Could stand to be a more efficient base-runner. Appears to be wearing down.
Career Potential: Solid veteran catcher.
