Scouting Report

AssetsDisplays some pop in his bat, as well as the ability to play any outfield position due to pretty good athleticism. Hits left-handed pitching well.
FlawsA former shortstop, he is not great in the outfield. Doesn't have a lot of base-stealing ability, either, which limits his offensive impact.
Career potentialDepth outfielder.
