He has an OPS that is above-average. He hits with above-average power and it must be respected.

He is below average with his 7.4% walk rate, drawing walks may not necessarily be that important or the opportunity may not arise as much. Striking out a bit more than your average hitter with a K Rate of 24.4%, it is not ideal, but… still a weakness. He is not getting on base this season as much as he or his manager hope.
