Lack of in game power is about the only thing holding him back IMO.
He can use the power when he wants to. It is in there. He has even noted himself that while he was in Pensacola he was merely trying to be a singles hitter and that when he went to Louisville, he tried to hit for more power. I don't think we are going to see him go out and hit 20 home runs or anything, but he is a 10-15 HR guy if he wants to be. He has the bat speed and swing to make that happen.
