  Scouting Report
 
Vander Wal is a low-ball hitter with fairly good straightaway power. Southpaws have given him trouble in the infrequent chances he's had against them. He has the rare ability to hit just as well when coming off the bench cold. A passable corner outfielder, he can fill in at first base if needed. He's a decent baserunner with average speed.
