Scouting Report
Is a stellar offensive player, complete with excellent plate patience and home-run power. Has also settled in nicely at the hot corner and is solid defensively. Is also an intense competitor with some leadership ability. Strikes out his fair share. It took him a long time to put it all together in MLB and to find his niche as a third baseman (making the move from catcher). Injuries have become a big story later on in his baseball career.
Long Range Potential: Excellent, veteran third baseman, when healthy.
