Scouting Report
Assets: This behemoth has prodigious power, run-producing qualities and pretty good plate coverage. Can also hit for a very solid average, if healthy. Has experience at both first base and left field.
Flaws: Needs more work on his defense (whether at first base or in the outfield). Could stand to draw a few more walks (and strike out less). Injuries have been a problem with him over the years.
Career Potential: Mammoth, versatile run-producer, when healthy.
