Scouting Report
Assets: Has a natural swing with fluid movement through the strike zone. Can hit for a very high average and steal bases regularly. Is athletic enough to play all three outfield positions.
Flaws: Since he has a very level swing, he has limitations in terms of home-run power. Also, he only has an average throwing arm, which makes left field his best position in the bigs.
Career Potential: Sweet-swinging, talented and versatile outfielder with a little upside.
