Scouting Report

AssetsHas a sweet swing with the ability to hit for both monster power and average. Turns up his game with runners in scoring position. Has improved his defense at first base due to a lot of hard work.
FlawsInjuries have become a growing concern here. Struggles a little against tough southpaws. Isn't completely comfortable in making all the plays at first base and lacks a little range. Is a slow runner.
