Scouting Report
Assets: A good athlete with a smooth stroke, he shows a strong mix of patience and power at the dish and has enough speed to steal some bases. Possesses good defensive instincts with the range and arm to play all three outfield spots.
Flaws: He took a while to develop into a major-league player, in part due to a proneness to injury. Could stand to keep improving his base-running instincts. Struggles with consistency at the plate, no matter if it's against righties or lefties.
Career Potential: Solid, versatile outfielder.
