Scouting Report
Assets: Used powerful wrists to hit doubles, triples and home runs in streaks. Was athletic and could take the extra base. Could also be a top-tier run-producer. Stole a lot of bases early on in his career.
Flaws: A free swinger, he was quite streaky and strikeout-prone. Didn't take as many walks as he should have. Was increasingly injury-prone with declining speed over the years. Also, he was not a good glove man.
Career Potential: Inconsistent, streaky but very productive slugger.
