Joe Siwa was a longshot 43rd round draft pick who caught his way all the way to AAA in the Twins system. He didn't hit a lick (career .216 average) and had no power to speak of (career .288 slugging percentage). His best year came for Kenosha in 1990, where he established career highs across the board (67 games, .246 average, 3 home runs, 25 RBI). All this leads me to believe he must have been a pretty solid defensive catcher.
