Scouting Report

AssetsHas great power and run-producing qualities. Can play either infield corner position (and perhaps left field) with aplomb, which adds to his overall value. Is also quite a patient batter and draws plenty of walks.
FlawsHis swing is a tad long, and he tends to chase the high fastball. Therefore, he strikes out a bit too much, which curbs his overall batting potential for the big-league level. Also needs to find his niche in the bigs.
Career potentialPower-hitting corner player with good upside.
