Scouting Report
Has tremendous plate patience, as well as great power, so he racks up both walks and dingers. Is also a quality defender at first base and a solid run producer. Can also play in the outfield. Strikes out a lot, which is to be expected, so he doesn't make a lot of contact overall (when coupled with his walks). Must prove capable of hitting for average with consistency.
Long Range Potential: Patient, powerful slugger with some upside.
