Scouting Report
Is a massive specimen with big-time power and run-producing ability. Also has a great batting eye. A good athlete, he is also adept with the glove. Can hit for a very good average and steal a base, too. Strikes out a bit too much and generally lacks a bit of consistency with the stick (otherwise, he'd perhaps be an all-time great). Specificallty, he can be too streaky when it comes to the home-run ball.
Long Range Potential: Elite hitter and run-producing first baseman.
