Scouting Report

AssetsA unique mix of size, power, speed and skill, he's also very mature and has a great approach to the game--including good plate patience. Is also excellent defensively and does the little things well.
FlawsNeeds to keep refining his game in all areas to maximize his significant potential. Must also be able to handle the pressure of being a much-ballyhooed prospect. Also, can he hit left-handed pitching as well as righties?
Career potentialTalented right-fielder with upside.
