Scouting Report
This behemoth has prodigious power, run-producing qualities and pretty good plate coverage. Can also hit for a very solid average, if healthy. Has experience at both first base and left field. Needs more work on his defense (whether at first base or in the outfield). Could stand to draw a few more walks (and strike out less). Injuries have been a problem with him over the years.
Long Range Potential: Mammoth, versatile run-producer, when healthy.
