Scouting Report

AssetsWas excellent defensively in center field and a great athlete in general. Possessed a good power bat and was also willing to take a walk. A regular threat for stolen bases late into his career.
FlawsWas simply too all-or-nothing at the plate, resulting in alarming strikeout rates and a low batting average. Never scored as much or produced the RBI he might have considering his tools, mainly because of his approach.
Career potentialAthletic defensive outfielder with power.
