Scouting Report

AssetsGenerates great power, thanks to his big frame, and can produce runs with aplomb. His size is also an asset as a target at first base. Is always willing to draw walks.
FlawsCould still stand to cut down on his high number of strikeouts even more, and also work a little harder on hitting for a better average. Isn't a very efficient runner.
Career potentialOutstanding power-hitting first baseman with some upside.
