Scouting Report
Assets: Is a stellar offensive player, complete with excellent plate patience and home-run power. Has also settled in nicely at the hot corner and is solid defensively. Is also an intense competitor with some leadership ability.
Flaws: Strikes out his fair share. It took him a long time to put it all together in MLB and to find his niche as a third baseman (making the move from catcher). Injuries have become a big story later on in his baseball career.
Career Potential: Excellent, veteran third baseman, when healthy.
