Scouting Report
Assets: Has great size, home-run power and run-producing acumen as a switch-hitter. Also runs fairly well for a big guy. Has settled in nicely at second base.
Flaws: Needs to cut down on his strikeout rate and become more patient to maximize his potential as a hitter. While steady, he's an unspectacular defender.
Career Potential: Run-producing switch-hitter.
