Scouting Report: Veteran backstop with a soild frame. Offensive-minded catcher with an above average hit tool.  Quiet stance, holds the bat high pre-pitch, lowering through the zone on approach. Slight uppercut swing mechanics. Showed slightly above average power in his heyday. Passable speed for a catcher. Smart, adaptable on defense. At his peak was above-average defensively, but skills have declined in recent years. Showed an average arm in 2019. Can also play first base. Two-time All-Star and former Brewers MVP. Now probably best suited as a backup or platoon mate. Very good clubhouse presence.
