Scouting Report

AssetsIs one of the great clutch hitters of his era and an RBI machine. Owns a lethal combination of plate patience and a monster power stroke. Is a born leader.
FlawsHas seen his eye and bat speed decline with age. Is a complete non-factor on the basepaths and isn't a great glove at first base. Could stand to cut down on his whiffs.
Career potentialVeteran star DH and leader.
