Scouting Report
Assets: Has a good glove and range, and can also play all three outfield positions. Can be a run-producing bat with power and patience. Also boasts speed and hustle on the basepaths. Is an asset off the bench, too.
Flaws: Swings very freely and strikes out too much, limiting his ability to consistently hit for a good average. Is very streaky, which makes him a risky proposition as an everyday player. Injuries are also a problem.
Career Potential: Versatile outfielder, when healthy.
