Landon Powell's future

Landon Powell was one of my(and I'm sure a lot of other people's) favorite prospect in baseball 2 years ago. When the A's were still running the over the hill Jason Kendall out there every day and Kurt Suzuki wasn't doing anything to separate himself from Powell.

 

We all know what happened, his knee gave up on him. At the time a lot of people think the A's will convert him into a 1B because there didn't seems to be a way that he can possibly stay behind the plate with those knees. But he came back and stayed at C. The contact ability isn't there but the patience as well as the power are still there last year in AAA.

 

In honor of him getting his first MLB hit and ribbie today. I post the question below.

 

So what do you make of Landon Powell? Is he going to stay a backup catcher until his knee blow out again? Or can he start somewhere and produce similar numbers offensively to guys like Mike Napoli(probably best case) or Chris Snyder?
