Scouting Report
Assets: Forced pitchers to throw him strikes, while batting for major power production. A clutch RBI guy, he was always willing to take walks (and he also got plunked a lot). Was Incredibly intense at the plate, as well.
Flaws: Was somewhat injury-prone, and it cut short his career to some degree. Would sometimes take huge cuts, which could adversely affect his batting average. Did not possess top-tier speed in the field or on the bases.
Career Potential: Quality hitter and run producer, when healthy.
