Does he have what it takes to be a solid power hitter?

I think his power is legit. He should come right in and produce some power. I've heard he's very streaky though. So he could be hit or miss. Don't expect a high avg.

Yup, about the only thing he'll have at least initially is power, he'll strike out a LOT and walk very little, and probably won't hit .250.
