Scouting Report

AssetsBrings a nice mix of run-producing skills and bat control to the plate. Makes good contact, in general. Doesn't strike out a lot. A good athlete, he runs well for a first baseman.
FlawsProfiles as more of a doubles hitter than a major home-run guy, which is a bit of an issue as a corner infielder. Also needs to show greater consistency in the bigs.
Career potentialVeteran first baseman.
