Scouting Report

AssetsWas simply an excellent pure hitter and run-producer, with the ability to both make great contact and hit for power. Was also clutch driving in runs. Didn't strike out a lot. Had a strong arm in his prime. Was a stolen-base threat early in his career.
FlawsBecame increasingly injury-prone with age--which also sapped his base-running speed and power--and it limited his defensive work over time (he was used more as a designated hitter later on in his career).
Career potentialRun-producing outfielder.
