Scouting Report
Assets: A natural low-ball hitter with good power, he can hit a lot of home runs and doubles. Flashes a strong outfield arm, helping him pile up assists. Can play either outfield corner.
Flaws: Swings the bat a bit too freely, leading to high strikeout totals and a lot of streakiness. Isn't much of a base-runner. Is somewhat injury-prone. Can struggle versus right-handed pitching.
Career Potential: Veteran run-producing outfielder in decline.
