Scouting Report
Assets: Is a quality switch-hitter and Gold Glove-caliber first baseman. Boasts the ability to hit for both power and contact when he's at his best. Also knows how to take a walk.
Flaws: Injuries have started to creep into the picture here, as he appears to be in decline. Can be a streaky hitter. Like most switch-hitters, has more power from one side (left).
Career Potential: Excellent veteran first baseman, when healthy.
