Scouting Report

AssetsCould play several positions well. Developed into a solid power hitter and RBI producer over time. Hustled and worked hard at improving his game. Mashed left-handed pitching.
FlawsWould have been an even better player if he didn't strike out as much as he did over the years. Defensively, he was never great at any one position. Also lacked the speed to steal bases.
Career potentialQuality utility man, bat off the bench and leader.
