Scouting Report

AssetsBoasts great run-producing ability, along with great plate discipline and power. He hits righties and lefties with equal proficiency. Can still catch on occasion, as well as play first base.
FlawsInjuries have forced him to DH mostly. His game-calling skills were never his strong suit. He also struggles to throw base-runners out with consistency while behind the plate.
Career potentialQuality veteran switch-hitting slugger.
