Scouting Report

AssetsIs blessed with a huge frame. Patient, he has quick wrists and a fluid, short stroke that generates monster power. Has enough athleticism to play in the outfield, as well as first base.
FlawsStrikes out way too much, so he needs to start making more consistent contact in the big leagues. Also needs to keep refining his defensive fundamentals and find his niche.
Career potentialBig power hitter with a little upside.
