I'd hardly say that at this point. He's a good defensive catcher and that will take you a long way in baseball. He has offensive potential but struggled last year. I have not heard of injury, but I suspect he's working at the training facility in Arizona with the rest of the rookie-level prospects. Hernandez moved past him on the organizational depth chart, and the Sox like to use their veteran defensive catchers, particularly with their better pitching prospects.
To call him a bust now would be silly.
