Scouting Report

AssetsBoasting decent power and a steady bat, he can turn it up a notch with runners in scoring position. Can get a hit coming off the bench and is able to play first base and the outfield.
FlawsHas never hit left-handed pitching enough to play every day. Isn't much of a runner, so his defense in the outfield is suspect.
Career potentialVeteran bat off the bench and backup first baseman/corner outfielder.
