Scouting Report
Assets: Mashes right-handed pitching. Brings a rare combination of bat speed and patience at the plate, which can lead to plenty of home runs. Can also run pretty well and is solid with the glove.
Flaws: Strikes out a bit too much and doesn't post a good-enough batting average to be a table-setter. Has regressed over time with greater exposure in MLB, and also athletically.
Career Potential: Inconsistent, veteran power hitter.
