Scouting Report
Assets: An outstanding talent who can cover the ground in the outfield, he can get to virtually every ball hit somewhere near him. Also uses his speed to wreak havoc on the bases. Has some pop, too.
Flaws: There are holes in his swing that he must correct in order to become a bigger offensive threat at the highest level. Also needs to do more with off-speed pitches, since he struggles with them.
Career Potential: Athletic outfielder with a great glove.
