Scouting Report
Understands his role as a run producer and does it very well. Has good bat speed that generates an impressive number of doubles and home runs. Has become a fairly patient hitter over time. Boasts a good throwing arm. Is fairly streaky in every facet of the game and is also a little injury-prone. Has some holes in his swing at times, which can lead to low batting averages and slumps. Struggled on defense whenever he was at the hot corner.
Long Range Potential: Excellent run-producing slugger.
