Scouting Report
Assets: Has the look of a classic first baseman: big and strong with a power bat that produces lots of home runs and RBI. He also catches left-handed and is solid around the bag. Can draw a lot of walks.
Flaws: Will go on some big strikeout binges and lacks overall consistency at the dish. Also struggles to hit left-handed pitchers regularly. Has very little speed on the bases. Is prone to minor injuries.
Career Potential: Versatile power-hitting first baseman.
