Scouting Report
Assets: Has a sweet swing from the left side and makes consistent contact. Knows how to work the count for his pitch and will take a free pass if he doesn't get it. Possesses a great glove and pretty good base-running acumen.
Flaws: Doesn't hit for as much power as he should (especially for a big first baseman), which hinders his overall value as an everyday player. Doesn't generate much extra-base power against left-handed pitchers.
Career Potential: Solid first baseman.
