Scouting Report

AssetsHe's the whole package as a hitter: an elite contact hitter with great bat control, occasional home-run power and a doubles machine. Also takes a number of walks and can be a top-tier run producer.
FlawsConcussion issues forced him to end his stint at catcher prematurely, which slightly lessens his overall value. At times, he could stand to be more aggressive at the plate. His home-run power lacks consistency.
Career potentialSuperstar left-handed hitter.
