Scouting Report

AssetsHad a sweet natural swing with tremendous patience and clutch ability. Was effective hitting from both sides of the dish. Didn't strike out too much for a power hitter. A consummate pro and team leader.
FlawsBecame injury-prone over the years and needed extra time to recover; rarely approached 500 at-bats per season in his later seasons. His defensive ability at third declined and he also didn't run as well as in his early years.
Career potentialHall-of-Famer.
