He's special, so special, I'd transition him to third base. You can't risk that kind of hitter taking the physical punishment a catcher takes. Besides long term knee and general fatigue over a season and a career, One bad collission at the plate and he can be out for the season. Any player can have that, but catcher's face a much higher risk with all the close plays at the plate.
Doesn't have Teddy's power, but hitting 400 seems doable if he stays healthy, keeps learning and has protection behind him. That turf has to bump his average a bit, but he'd be hitting anywhere.
