Scouting Report: Veteran minor leaguer with major league backup experience.  Athletic frame for a catcher. Fairly durable.  Has shown flashes of a projectable average hit tool in AAA, but has not carried that over to the majors. Passable hitter for a major league emergency catcher. Minimal power or speed.  Solid defensively.  Above-average arm strength, inconsistent accuracy. Smooth transfer. Communicates well with pitchers. Not the best pitch framer, can struggle with balls in the dirt. Earned a World Series ring with the Astros in 2017. Projects as an emergency up-and-down catcher.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
