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 too much for someone with his speed. Therefore, he'd benefit a lot by making more contact. Can lose his focus at times. Would benefit by developing his situational hitting to drive in more runs.
Career potentialVersatile, base-stealing utility man.
