Scouting Report
Assets: Boasts great run-producing ability, along with great plate discipline and power. He hits righties and lefties with equal proficiency. Can still catch on occasion, as well as play first base.
Flaws: Injuries have forced him to DH mostly. His game-calling skills were never his strong suit. He also struggles to throw base-runners out with consistency while behind the plate.
Career Potential: Quality veteran switch-hitting slugger.
