Scouting Report

AssetsMashes left-handed pitching. Has the power to knock the ball out of the park. Can play several positions (second base, third base, first base). Can also come off the bench and deliver.
FlawsDespite his versatility, he's not a top-end fielder or very mobile. Was somewhat injury-prone in the past. Could stand to cut down on his strikeouts and increase his patience at the plate.
Career potentialVeteran utility man.
