Scouting Report

AssetsWorks the count for good pitches and walks, and can rack up doubles with a very smooth line-drive swing. Plays a highly efficient and consistent first base. Can come off the bench effectively.
FlawsHas lost both bat and foot speed with age. No longer a threat to bat for a high average, he strikes out too much for a hitter without huge home-run power. Is too streaky. Struggles against lefties.
Career potentialVeteran first baseman.
