He was hitting in the bottom of the order. If he had AB in the middle of the order which teams think he could hit he would be probably tops in HR and RBI's and that is what your looking for offensively from a catcher not speed haha.
I'm not going to comment on RBIs because they are an empty stat.
While JPA ranked 4th in HR, he ranked dead last in AVG among catchers with 350+ PA. He also tied for the most K.
