Scouting Report
Assets: Owns tremendous lower-body strength, which makes him a huge home-run threat (and also helps him with his receiving skills). Is also a leader. A pure hitter, he is also supremely patient. Can also play the outfield.
Flaws: Is not a natural when it comes to the finer points of catching, so he may need to permanently switch to a corner outfield at some point. His personality, though, is far better suited to being heavily involved in the action.
Career Potential: Excellent, versatile power hitter with upside.
