Scouting Report: Solid-framed catcher who has been up and down between High A and Double-A in recent years. Hits from an open stance that closes on pitch approach. Hands quiet down as the pitch approaches. Solid-average present power, but doesn't project to improve that. Below-average speed. Decent in the field, but not spectacular.
