Scouting Report

AssetsPossessed a smooth left-handed swing with some power and patience. Was capable of using all fields and drove the ball to the gaps. Was an excellent fielder at third base, pre-injuries.
FlawsMajor injuries sapped him of his durability, consistency and mobility in the field and on the bases. Could no longer play a great third base due to major back woes, which cut his prime years short.
Career potentialOft-injured but quality corner infielder.
