Scouting Report / Bio: Bigger than his listed 205 lbs., Stewart has a thick, athletic build, with the type of lower body common in power hitters. Still very adept in the field; quick on balls in front, good range glove side, and a strong but sometimes erratic arm. At the plate, Stewart has a patient approach, but is still prone to slumps. His uppercut swing doesn't stay in the zone as long as it should, but he can lace line drives to every part of the field when he's on. Late bloomer with real power potential, but average is up for debate. Similar to Eric Chavez.
Future Outlook: Middle of the order threat with slick glove, but may not match upside of David Wright or Ryan Zimmerman.
