I like the power, but that seems to be all he has going for him.
Normally Rick, I would be right there with you. But Lutz isn't 22 years old in baseball terms. When the Reds signed him, he had hardly even played organized baseball.
He is probably limited to first base, but he is fast enough to play left field if they wanted to go that route.
His K/BB improved big time in the second half. He needs to walk more though.
