Scouting Report

AssetsIs lightning fast and extremely aggressive as a base-stealer. Is also patient at the plate and knows how to get on base. Displays some pop in his bat. Is versatile enough to play several different positions.
FlawsStrikes out a bit too much for someone with his speed. Still honing his skills as a baserunner, he can lose concentration at times. Would benefit by developing his situational hitting to drive in more runs.
Career potentialVersatile, base-stealing utility man.
