Scouting Report

AssetsDisplays good patience and the ability to make consistent contact at the dish. Has good speed. Can play several positions, both in the infield and outfield, so he is plenty versatile.
FlawsDoesn't always use his speed to maximize his impact on the field. Lacks power, mainly due to a lack of ideal size. Must prove he can play with more consistency, since he's very streaky.
Career potentialVersatile, contact-hitting table-setter with a little upside.
