It could be the injury, I said that.
But from what I've seen, and following his record, he seems like a singles and doubles hitter without speed.
Good plate discipline. Uses the whole ballpark. But hasn't shown home run power.
I'd like to see the home run power before agreeing that he's a top first base prospect.
