Scouting Report
Assets: Has some pop in his bat and great versatility: Is slick defensively at second base, but can also play third (and even first) base. Can go on home-run streaks.
Flaws: Must cut down on his swing, since he goes for the fences too much and ends up striking out a lot. Generally, he doesn't hit for a good average. Doesn't run much.
Career Potential: Versatile power-hitting infielder.
