Scouting Report

AssetsAn excellent athlete, he runs very well and can cover the ground in center field. Can also steal bases and line-drive power. Is a patient hitter who will take his walks, too.
FlawsNeeds to continue to make adjustments at the plate, since he lacks the consistency required to hit for a high average at the big-league level. Also, his power is limited.
Career potentialAthletic outfielder with some upside.
