Scouting Report
Assets: Is a great all-around hitter, with tremendous speed and an even better approach at the dish. Can cover plenty of ground in centerfield. Displays enormous home-run power and the ability to produce a ton of runs. Simply put, he is an amazing catalyst.
Flaws: Occasionally, he will lose concentration in the field (or on base). Could stand to be more aggressive when on base (he does not steal enough bases). Also, he does not have the type of arm to prevent runners from taking an extra base on him regularly.
Career Potential: Elite, all-around outfielder.
