He just developed? I just read yesterday that his plate discipline was pretty polished. Check the whole smackdown article over at Sickels site (minorleagueball.com)

The interesting thing about PECOTA is that his BETA score is so low (which essentially means that the system has a high level of confidence that his projection is accurate). They also project him to hit the third most HRs for any catcher, only 1 or 2 behind Martinez.
