Scouting Report

AssetsUses powerful wrists to hit doubles, triples, and home runs in streaks. Is athletic and can take the extra base. Can be a top-tier run-producer.
FlawsA free swinger, he is quite streaky and strikeout-prone. Doesn't take as many walks as he should. Is increasingly injury-prone, with declining speed. Also, he's not a good glove man.
Career potentialInconsistent veteran slugger.
