Scouting Report
Assets: Boasts prodigious power and solid patience at the plate. Is an ideal target at first base (6-4, 230 pounds and left-handed). Switch-hitting adds to his overall value.
Flaws: At times, he's too patient at the dish and will place himself in bad hitters' counts. That leads to too many strikeouts as a result. Lacks consistency in a big way.
Career Potential: Inconsistent but powerful switch-hitting first baseman.
