Scouting Report

AssetsUnderstands his role as a run producer and does it very well. Has good bat speed that generates a solid number of doubles and home runs. Is now a fairly patient hitter. Boasts a good arm and is somewhat versatile afield.
FlawsIs fairly streaky in every facet of the game and is also a little injury-prone. Has some holes in his swing at times, which can lead to low batting averages and slumps. Struggles on defense whenever he's at the hot corner.
Career potentialQuality run-producing slugger.
