His bat isn't good enough for a DH. His value only comes because he can sort of catch.
Just, what a terrible player he is. Horrible at pitch framing, terrible at blocking, doesn't throw out enough runners, can't get on base, can't hit for average, strikes out a ton but hey, homeruns! He is so lucky he is barely a passable catcher.
Yep hes honestly brutal.
The only thing he has going is the fact he hits home runs and lots of girls like him. When it comes to the actual important things for a catcher......he sucks.
Nope this brutal start to the season is not JP's fault and nowhere did I say that. JP is however a brutal catcher. He can hit long homeruns but besides that the guy is absolutely useless. The catchers job first and foremost is to play defense and run a pitching staff well. It doesnt matter if the guy hits 40 home runs if he is a absolute joke behind the plate and JP is.
JP's defense is honestly the worst I've seen from the position in my 30 years of watching the sport.
