Scouting Report

AssetsHis bat speed and hands are off the charts, so he is a constant threat at the dish. Blessed with great power, he is a run-producing machine and great all-around hitter. In the field, he displays a great arm and good athleticism.
FlawsWill need to tack on some bulk for his 6-2 frame in order to maximize his vast potential as a hitter. In so doing, he will likely lose some of his speed. Therefore, he's probably going to outgrow the center-field position.
Career potentialFantastic hitter with great upside.
