Scouting Report

AssetsHas good discipline at the plate and great instincts in the outfield. He can really rake against right-handed pitching and is versatile in the outfield. Is solid in all facets of baseball.
FlawsSouthpaws can give him some trouble and he doesn't utilize his speed enough to offset a relative lack of power. His hard-nosed nature makes him somewhat prone to injury.
Career potentialVersatile veteran outfielder and quality defender.
