Scouting Report

AssetsA good athlete, he is also adept at taking plenty of pitches and being ultra-selective at the dish. Also displays a decent power/speed combination. Is a good defensive outfielder, too.
FlawsCould probably stand to be a little more aggressive at the plate, and swing at pitches a little earlier in the count, since he does strike out quite a bit too. Is prone to hitting slumps.
Career potentialAthletic, selective outfielder with a little upside.
