Scouting Report
Assets: A bona fide top-tier power hitter with good size, a powerful swing and nice follow through, he also can run a little. Has the arm to play right field, but can also play left field.
Flaws: Is somewhat injury-prone, especially his legs/groins. Takes a huge cut and can be all-or-nothing at the plate (hitting a homer or striking out), so he'd benefit by shortening his swing at times.
Career Potential: Quality veteran slugging outfielder.
