Scouting Report

AssetsSwings a powerful bat with above-average home-run ability. Is patient at the plate and will take his walks. A solid athlete, he boasts an accurate arm from the outfield.
FlawsWhen he gets his pitch he takes a huge cut, leading to too many strikeouts and a middling batting average. While he hustles, he's not an efficient base-runner. Is limited to left field.
Career potentialRun-producing corner outfielder.
