Scouting Report
Has tremendous hitting ability, both for monster power and batting average, and is a true run producer in every sense. Can also draw walks and manage his strikeout totals to acceptable levels. He can even steal a base now and then. Defensively, he is a poor outfielder (despite pretty good athleticism). Can also play first base but is likely to be a designated hitter most of the time at the highest level. Injuries (he has had wrist issues in the past) can also be a factor here.
Long Range Potential: Uber-talented left-handed slugger with huge upside.
