Scouting Report
Assets: Is lightning fast and extremely aggressive as a base-stealer. Is also patient at the plate and knows how to get on base. Displays some pop in his bat. Is versatile enough to play several different positions.
Flaws: Strikes out too much for someone with his speed. Therefore, he'd benefit a lot by making more contact. Can lose his focus at times. Would benefit by developing his situational hitting to drive in more runs.
Career Potential: Versatile, base-stealing utility man.
