Scouting Report

AssetsA great natural athlete with supreme baseball instincts, he owns a sweet swing with big power and excellent plate patience. Can produce in the clutch. Is also a good fielder with a strong arm and mobility.
FlawsLacks durability and is injury-prone. Can also be quite streaky and has particular trouble hitting left-handed pitching with consistency. Hasn't quite lived up to the expectations. Is now in decline.
