Scouting Report

AssetsBoasts great hustle, base-swiping ability and strong base-running skills in general. He'll slap the ball into the gaps for extra bases and is pretty good in the clutch. Can take a walk.
FlawsStrikes out more than you'd like to see from a speedster without much power. Struggles to hit with consistency, especially against southpaws. Doesn't have the arm to play center field well.
Career potentialSpeedy outfielder.
