Scouting Report

AssetsOwns good power and very good strike-zone judgment, so he draws a fair amount of walks and waits for a pitch he can drive. Is also a solid defensive first baseman.
FlawsMust hit for a better average (especially against lefties) in order to play every day at the big-league level. Doesn't run particularly well. Also, he strikes out a bit too much.
Career potentialSolid first baseman with a little upside.
