Scouting Report

AssetsHas phenomenal natural hitting talent. He can go deep to any field and is a very good athlete. Can do it all, including run a little and hit at the top of the batting order. His defense in left field is superb.
FlawsCould stand to improve his walk/strikeout ratio more in order to maximize his output as a hitter. After a shaky display at the hot corner, he has settled down defensively, but it was a struggle in the infield.
Career potentialQuality slugger and runs-creator.
