Scouting Report

AssetsA phenomenal athlete, he possesses all five tools. Owns big-time home-run power. Has a rare mix of size, wheels and raw natural bat-speed. Throws well from the outfield.
FlawsStrikes out too much. Has shown he can sometimes lose focus (at the plate, on the basepaths and in the field). Needs to keep working on his fundamentals and consistency.
