Scouting Report

AssetsA classic right-fielder, he hits for average, boasts good power, a strong throwing arm and some base-running ability. Owns plenty of upside as a hitter.
FlawsDoesn't draw enough walks to fully take advantage of his power stroke, so he needs to work on his walk/strikeout ratio. In general, he needs to improve his discipline.
Career potentialTalented outfielder with upside.
