Scouting Report

AssetsA switch-hitter with surprising power from both sides, he is supremely patient at the dish. A clutch hitter and a team leader who hustles all the time, he's also versatile with the glove.
FlawsThough a patient hitter, he doesn't make great contact--leading to too many strikeouts. Can seem a little reckless at times, both in the field and on the bases. Appears to be in decline.
Career potentialVersatile veteran slugger.
