Scouting Report

AssetsAn elite overall offensive package, he hits for a consistently stellar average with above-average power. Is patient at the dish. Shows good base-running smarts and flashes a strong arm from the outfield.
FlawsIs not a fluid outfielder and will make his share of errors in left field. Tends to strike out a bit too much. Can be slowed by leg problems over the course of the 162-game schedule.
Career potentialQuality veteran run-producing left-fielder.
