Scouting Report

AssetsIs supremely fast and is a very active base-stealer. Displays a lot of energy and can get on base fairly regularly (with singles and some walks) when on his game. Has a very good arm in the outfield. Is infectious.
FlawsIs mostly a slap hitter at the plate and provides little power for even doubles. Gets caught a little too much trying to steal and his technique isn't the greatest. Also, he tends to rile up opponents with his raw energy.
Career potentialSpeedy outfielder.
