Scouting Report
Assets: Mashes left-handed pitching. Generates good bat speed with his quick wrists and huge forearms. Can play either corner outfield spot, thanks to a good throwing arm. A hard-nosed player, he hustles and adds leadership.
Flaws: Is way too streaky, in general. Swings far too freely at the plate, leading to a lot of strikeouts and not enough walks. Sometimes struggles with the glove in the outfield. Doesn't hit right-handed pitchers well.
Career Potential: Streaky power-hitting outfielder.
