Scouting Report
Assets: A unique mix of size, power, speed and skill, he's also very mature and has a great approach to the game--including good plate patience. Is also excellent defensively and does the little things well.
Flaws: Needs to keep refining his game in all areas to maximize his significant potential. Must also be able to handle the pressure of being a much-ballyhooed prospect. Also, can he hit left-handed pitching as well as righties?
Career Potential: Talented right-fielder with upside.
