Scouting Report

AssetsIs blessed with a fine mix of size, athleticism and power at the plate. A good hitter who knows how to take a walk, he also has the range and versatility to play a quality center field.
FlawsHas some holes in his swing and will strike out in bunches. Needs to keep polishing up his whole game. Is mildly injury-prone. Doesn't use his speed enough on the base-paths.
Career potentialTalented, yet very streaky outfielder.
