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.
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.
Career Potential: Speedy, great defensive outfielder with all-round ability.
