Scouting Report
Assets: Is a pretty solid offensive player, complete with excellent plate patience and home-run power. Can even run a little. Has also settled in nicely at the hot corner and manages well defensively.
Flaws: Lacks consistency in terms of hitting for a high batting average, and can be a bit too streaky in the major leagues in general. Also, he tends to strike out a bit too much (he swings and misses a lot).
Career Potential: Quality run-producing third baseman.
