Scouting Report

AssetsIs a solid, professional hitter who doesn't hurt his team in any way. Has displayed both home-run power and base-stealing speed at the minor-league level. Is pretty versatile in the field.
FlawsStrikes out a bit too much and also struggles to hit left-handed pitching consistently, making him more of a role player at the big-league level. Injuries can also be an issue here.
Career potentialSolid outfielder.
