  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Large-framed backstop with major league experience.

Hit: Below-average hit tool. Pull heavy.

Power: Above-average raw power with an uppercut swing. Power pops in game, but won't mash because he won't hit for average.

Run: Well below-average speed.

Field: Above-average defensively.  Calls a good game.

Arm: Above-average to plus arm.
  Career Notes: Drafted by the Dodgers in 2008 but did not signed, enrolled at Arizona. Played for Y-D in the Cape Cod League in 2010. Spent six seasons in the Angels' system. Has spent time several seasons in the MLB as a backup or emergency depth catcher. Played at the Alternate Training Site in 2020 and was often used as the taxi squad catcher. Declared free agency in November 2020 but re-signed with Boston in February 2021. Opened 2021 at the Alternate Training Site.

Summation: Ceiling of an MLB backup. Good asset to have in Triple-A for major league depth.

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