Scouting Report
Assets: Has great power and run-producing qualities. Can play either infield corner position (and perhaps left field) with aplomb, which adds to his overall value. Is also quite a patient batter and draws plenty of walks.
Flaws: His swing is a tad long, and he tends to chase the high fastball. Therefore, he strikes out a bit too much, which curbs his overall batting potential for the big-league level. Also needs to find his niche in the bigs.
Career Potential: Versatile, depth power hitter.
