Scouting Report
Assets: An exceptional athlete and classic five-tool baseball player, he owns outstanding speed, supreme defensive acumen, a very strong throwing arm and an excellent bat. Can steal plenty of bases, play all three outfield positions and displays good discipline at the dish. He is the total package.
Flaws: Will need to be able to manage expectations in Major League Baseball, since he has been compared to some of the greatest outfielders of all time at an early age. While his home-run power is sure to come (mainly because he has great wrists and fast hands, overall), it may be the last thing to develop.
Career Potential: Sensational, five-tool outfielder with massive upside.
