Scouting Report
Assets: Has some pop in his bat and great versatility: Is a natural second baseman, but can also play third and first base. Can go on prolonged home-run streaks in the big leagues.
Flaws: Could stand to cut down on his swing, since he goes for the fences too much and ends up striking out a lot. Generally, he does not hit for a good average. Lacks speed.
Career Potential: Versatile veteran left-handed bat.
