Scouting Report
: Bailey mainly plays 1B and corner outfield these days after previously spending a lot of time as a catcher. He is adequate defensively, with below average range, a decent glove, and a good arm.  With the bat, he has outstanding power and strength. Good contact and plate patience. Slow on the basepaths, but runs intelligently - about what you'd expect from a converted catcher.  Strikes out a little too much, but that has improved over the years.  Has shown struggles against advanced breaking stuff.  Has the potential to be a versatile backup and off-the-bench bat at the major league level. Probably could start for some small market teams.  Bailey has been a team leader and model teammate with the Red Sox organization for six seasons.
