Scouting Report
Assets: Generates a strong line-drive swing with impressive power, despite a strange stance at the plate. Hits the ball hard to all fields. Is an excellent run-producer.
Flaws: Can't contribute much on defense, and is considered somewhat of a liability at first base. Doesn't run very well, either. His home-run power leaves something to be desired.
Career Potential: Excellent hitter and run producer.
