Scouting Report
Displays very good home-run power for all levels. Is patient and can draw a fair amount of walks, too. Also owns a very strong arm at the hot corner. Can be a solid run producer. His swing is too long, so strikeouts will always be an issue for him (especially in MLB). Is not a great hitter for average, so his power numbers will always have to be there.
Long Range Potential: Power-hitting third baseman with some upside.
