Scouting Report

AssetsIs an incredible athlete with an impressive combination of speed and power. Consistently cranks out doubles when he's on his game. Has a lot of range in the outfield and can play all three positions.
FlawsStrikes out far too much and has some major holes in his swing (contributing to low batting averages). Doesn't get on base enough to make great use of his speed. Needs work on his consistency. Struggles against righties.
Career potentialStreaky, versatile outfielder with holes in his swing.
