Scouting Report

AssetsHas tremendous speed and the range to play center field. Hits left-handers very well and steals bases with aplomb. Is comfortable in the leadoff spot. Can also play an outfield corner.
FlawsHis walk/strikeout ratio can prevent him from seeing regular at-bats and thriving as a leadoff man. Doesn't have much power to speak of, either. Lacks consistency.
Career potentialSpeedy veteran outfielder and base-stealer.
