Scouting Report: Veteran first baseman and outfielder who has played for every AL East team. Bat has good pop to the pull side. Successful hitter vs major league left-handed pitching. Capable defensive first baseman. Previously a solid outfielder, but defense has declined with age. Mediocre speed and not a threat to steal bases. Nicknamed "Late Lightning" because he's a very good pinch hitter. MVP of the 2018 World Series.
