Scouting Report

AssetsA natural hitter, he had a huge frame with a long reach and incredibly quick wrists, helping him turn on balls wherever they were pitched. Had a rocket arm in the outfield. A prolific power hitter who hit for a high average without a lot of strikeouts, his plate coverage was exceptional.
FlawsAge and bad knees sapped him of his mobility later in his career and made him more injury-prone, limiting him mostly to the DH role at that stage of his career. Was always error-prone in the outfield, especially mental mistakes. Didn't walk enough, especially early on in his career.
Career potentialTalented five-tool outfielder and run producer.
