VERY impressed. I hope the bat comes around…..easy guy to root for!

Strong defensive catchers who handle pitchers well is a commodity that has some value. Even if he is never more than a backup.

However, I definitely see this as a guy that will determine his own destiny.

Liked this kid when he was drafted because of his ability defensively and his background. Too bad he’s already 23.

He could improve his chances by separating himself from the pack, and the best way to do that would be hitting well in the lower levels.

Runs in his blood. Very impressive to see at just 23.
