Name the player based off his prospect excerpt from Baseball America
A righthanded hitter, he has a stiff, armoriented, uppercut swing that produces below-average bat speed. He knows the strike zone and can put the ball in play. While stocky, he's agile behind the plate, with soft hands and average arm strength. He shines on defense, leading the league by throwing out 38 percent of basestealers last year. He excels at calling games and running a pitching staff
Hint: He never was a top-10 guy, but did make his system’s top-30 five years in a row
