Scouting Report
Swings an above-average power bat and does well against right-handed pitching in particular. Can get red-hot with the bat. Is also a pretty good athlete who can play either first base or in the outfield. Needs to prove he can hit left-handed pitching consistently in order to play every day in the big leagues. Would benefit by being more selective at the plate. Defensively, he lacks a position of his own.
Long Range Potential: Decent, versatile left-handed power bat.
