Scouting Report
Assets: A superb all-round athlete with good size, he can fly around the bases, has great range in the outfield with a good glove and hits for a good average. Has a solid arm and some home-run power.
Flaws: Swings at too many bad pitches, leading to big strikeout totals. As a result, he has had to shorten his swing so he may not produce as much power as a result. Should steal more but is hesitant on the bases.
Career Potential: Quality center-fielder.
