Any thoughts on JR Towles

I thought before the year that he would eventually make it to the bigs and it would be about a 50% chances that he could be an average catcher with significantly more athleticism. He started off like a snail and when Santangello failed a drug test it changed Towles life forever. Since then he has shot up from A+ to 1st string catcher for the month of September. He has played way over his head so far. And he only has about 9% of the at bats as most catchers. But the most interesting thing so far is that he has yet to strike out.

If you have seen him he is also about 9% the size of a normal catcher. Greg "The Rat" Zaun thinks Towles needs to hit the weights.

What do yall think of Towles?
