Scouting Report

AssetsHad one of the best batting eyes in the majors. Was incredibly patient and a master of working the count. A student of hitting, leader and a clutch RBI guy, he hit doubles galore and was excellent defensively at first base.
FlawsHad back issues over the years, and his power numbers shrunk with age and his injury issues. Towards the end of his career he became a lot less productive as a result. Had also always lacked speed as a base-runner.
Career potentialExcellent overall first baseman.
