Scouting Report
He is blessed with a rare mix of size, athleticism, power and baseball instincts. Is an elite fielder (when healthy) and excellent batter at the plate. Consistent, he hits for average and power. Can also draw walks. Lacks the speed to steal a lot of bases at the big-league level (though he is a solid base-runner). Also strikes out a little too much and is prone to a few prolonged slumps. Shoulder problems forced a move to 1B.
Long Range Potential: Excellent, versatile slugger.
