Scouting Report

AssetsA supremely gifted right-fielder with incredible baseball instincts, he's one of the greatest contact hitters ever. A prolific singles hitter & run scorer, he also has a great throwing arm & base-stealing speed.
FlawsDoesn't possess a lot of home-run power and doesn't hit a lot of doubles, either. Also doesn't take a lot of walks. Is not seen as a clubhouse leader, despite his superstar status. Is in decline.
Career potentialElite contact hitter & table-setter.
