Scouting Report

AssetsIs every pitcher's nightmare at the plate: incredibly patient, shows pinpoint strike-zone judgment and has a smooth, compact swing with great power. As consistent and unflappable as they come, he also surprises with the odd stolen base. Is also incredibly durable.
FlawsCan make his share of mistakes fielding first base and is in decline defensively. Is prone to hitting slumps from time to time. After several years of playing nearly every day, he is starting to slow down a little bit in terms of injury and his dominance against pitchers.
Career potentialOne of the great hitters in baseball.
