06/86 Selected as 19th pick in annual June draft by Detroit 08/31/88 Traded from Detroit to Baltimore for Fred Lynn 12/XX/94 Signed to a five year contract extension.
Has a rare combination of power and on-base ability, especially for a catcher. There are only one or two other catchers in the game who can match him offensively. There is a perception that he is injury prone, but he isn't, for a catcher.
