Scouting Report
Assets: Has great speed and is also a solid hitter with good gap power. Displays some patience at the dish. Can also run down a ton of fly balls in the outfield. Is an adept base-stealer. Can play center field or on a corner.
Flaws: Doesn't have a great amount of home-run power, and he strikes out a bit too much for a top-of-the-order hitter. Therefore, he must learn where he profiles best in the lineup. Injuries can also be a factor.
Career Potential: Speedy, all-round outfielder, when healthy.
