Scouting Report
: Excellent catcher's frame. Makes average to slightly below-average contact. Plus power. Above-average plate discipline. Hits well from both sides of the plate. There are some concerns about his defense, primarily his glove work and his game-calling ability. Throws out runners at a decent clip. Has had issues with throwing the ball back to the pitcher.
