AssetsIs a natural at driving in runs. His swing is quick and short, but still produces power. Has the discipline to take his share of walks and boasts a great outfield arm. Can also play in the infield.
FlawsHis slumps can tend to fester for a lengthy period of time, perhaps due to the fact he plays different positions on a regular basis. Also, the wear and tear is leading to increasing injury issues.
Career potentialVersatile veteran run producer.
