Scouting Report

AssetsWas a good run-producer. Possessed good gap power and piled up a nice number of doubles. Could also hit home runs. Played the game the right way. Had a good arm for the hot corner.
FlawsMade too many errors at third base. Was a little injury-prone. Struck out too much, making him somewhat streaky at the plate. Was never a very speedy base-runner.
