Scouting Report
Had a keen eye at the plate and plenty of home-run power for a catcher. His left-handed bat was a bonus behind the plate. Did not hit left-handed pitching with consistency in the big leagues. His number of strikeouts were a problem in Major League Baseball.
Long Range Potential: Decent left-hand-hitting catcher.
