Scouting Report: Light-hitting catcher with major league ready defense.  Has good hand action at the plate but struggles to maintain a consistent swing.  Subpar approach.  Above average raw power.    On defense, he shows a plus arm and above-average footwork. Fringy ball block ability, somewhat error prone.
