Overall Grade   C Average MLB player
Designated Hitter

Free-swinging veteran catcher with bottom-of-the-barrel plate discipline, but above average hand-eye coordination and power. Extremely durable and a large physical specimen for a catcher. Has always caught on with a team due to power and durability. Plate discipline issue is evident by the small gap between BA and OBP. He is the master of the 3 pitch strikeout. Seems disinterested at times and struggles with clubhouse relationships.

This guy had a hit tool and some toughness, and that was about it. His defense was/is some of the worst I've ever seen behind the plate, even when he was in his prime.

You almost have to give him a C because his career lasted so long, but when you grade out his tools, it should be lower.
