Scouting Report

AssetsShowed incredible versatility defensively. A smart and pure hitter with a great eye, he was consistent and highly productive with the bat, spraying line drives all over the field. Was pretty athletic and a good base-runner.
FlawsBecame a little bit more injury-prone with age. Always made his share of errors defensively, no matter the position. Would have been an even better hitter if he took more walks over the course of his career.
Career potentialSuperb contact hitter with outstanding versatility.
