Scouting Report

AssetsA top athlete with supreme instincts on the basepaths, he's a constant steals threat. Very fast, he can run down almost anything in the outfield. Gets on base consistently thanks to a great eye, a sweet swing and patience. Also boasts some power.
FlawsDoesn't have much of a throwing arm from the outfield. Durability has been questioned at times in his career, as he's already endured some injury issues. Could stand to be a more consistent hitter against left-handed pitching.
Career potentialStar table-setter and center-fielder.
