dangerous hitter on club. Remarkable wrists and timing, hits with great power
to all fields. Play him deep and straight away. Never throw him fast ball to
hit; use it to move him back or waste it outside. Good curve-ball hitter; keep
curve down and away, use changeup to keep him off balance. Hits first pitch.
arm, sure hands. Loping stride covers lots of ground. Is not spectacular and
has tendency to loaf.
Good speed but is not smart on bases. No threat to steal.

Low-ball hitter batting left, highball hitter batting right. Likes to hit first
pitch. Throw him changeup, curve.
FIELDING: One of
the great second basemen; smooth, steady, often brilliant. Sure and quick on
double play. Masterpiece is charging slow ground ball.
Smart, gets jump, but has slowed down at 34, won't steal.
