View Draft ReportScouts have questioned Varitek's receiving skills, arm accuracy and bat speed from the left side, but that's more a case of trying to find fault in a player who has been heavily exposed. Varitek plays a key position, switch-hits, has above-average power, well above-average arm strength and works well with his pitchers.
