Scouting Report

AssetsCan generate a lot of power in his swing and is a potential run-producer in the mold of a classic corner infielder. Has good athleticism. Can play either first or third base.
FlawsA free swinger, he strikes out too much and must improve his approach at the dish to hit for a better average. Is not an instinctive defender when at the hot corner.
Career potentialPower-hitting corner infielder with a little upside.
