Scouting Report
Assets: Generates tremendous bat speed, so he has plenty of untapped power potential. Super fast, he can cover the ground in center field and be a real threat on the basepaths.
Flaws: The jury is out on his long-range home-run upside. He'll need to bulk up significantly in order to maximize his potential as a run producer, which may take away from his speed.
Career Potential: Athletic, toolsy outfielder with big upside.
