Scouting Report
Assets: Hits the ball with elite power but also has a very good batting eye and solid plate discipline. Has rare athleticism for a man his size, including speed. Can play the corner outfield spots or first base.
Flaws: Sometimes lets his smooth swing get a little long, leading to way too many strikeouts. Would benefit from taking more free passes. Needs to polish his defense, overall. Is a tad injury-prone.
Career Potential: Underachieving but talented and versatile slugger.
