Scouting Report
Generates great power, thanks to his big frame, and can produce runs with aplomb. His size is also an asset as a target at first base. Is always willing to draw walks. Has cut down on his strikeouts, too. Is not a very efficient runner, so he could stand to improve his stolen-base percentage. Also, he still needs to work on hitting for average against left-handed pitching. Is not an elite athlete, either.
Long Range Potential: Outstanding power-hitting and run-producing first baseman.
