Scouting Report

AssetsBrings excellent home-run power to the plate and is willing to take a walk. Is quite smooth around the first-base bag, thanks to quick feet and an above-average glove.
FlawsStrikes out too much and can be all-or-nothing for stretches, significantly hurting his batting average. Is a little injury-prone.
Career potentialInconsistent power-hitting first baseman.
