Scouting Report

AssetsForces pitchers to throw to him and often gets plunked, while batting for major power production. A clutch RBI guy, he's willing to take walks. Incredibly intense at the plate, he's also a decent outfielder.
FlawsWill sometimes take huge cuts, which can adversely affect his batting average. Does not possess top-tier speed in the field or on the bases. Is also somewhat injury-prone at this stage of his career.
Career potentialQuality hitter and run producer, when healthy.
