Scouting Report

AssetsA well-rounded talent, he boasts a nice line-drive bat with solid patience, above-average power, speed and a very good outfield arm.
FlawsSometimes, he strikes out far too much for a player with his skill set. Can also be a bit too streaky with the bat. Injuries are also a concern.
Career potentialWell-rounded outfielder and table-setter.
