Scouting Report

AssetsOne of the most patient and disciplined hitters of his era, he rarely swing unless he saw a good pitch and happily took piles of free passes. Possessed pretty good power. Had good hands in the field.
FlawsWas uncommonly injury-prone to a fault and struggled to get 500 at-bats per season. His tendency to break down physically also limited him defensively. Would strike out too much for his power level.
Career potentialOft-injured first baseman with great plate discipline.
