Scouting Report
Assets: A phenomenal athlete, he has a lanky frame with quick wrists, a great throwing arm and supreme speed. Is an elite center-fielder, above-average base-stealer, decent home-run hitter and patient at the dish.
Flaws: Has holes in his swing and takes a huge cut, so he piles up tremendous amounts of strikeouts. Can suffer from mental lapses in the field. Generally lacks polish. Can also be a little temperamental.
Career Potential: Inconsistent, athletic outfielder with great tools.
