Scouting Report

AssetsHis range and arm at the hot corner are nothing short of outstanding. Usually hits for a good average, plus above-average power without striking out too much.
FlawsHealth has become a valid concern over time, since his back has constantly given him trouble over the years. His power can be inconsistent as a result.
Career potentialAging veteran third baseman.
