Scouting Report

AssetsA top-tier run producer with clutch ability, he is patient at the plate and hits with good power. Is a very good high-ball hitter, and he can tattoo mistake pitches when he guesses right. Boasts an accurate arm and is very dependable in left field.
FlawsStrikes out far too much, which somewhat negates his great patience. He lacks consistency in the home-run department, as well as in terms of his batting average. Needs to prove he is not in decline with the bat.
Career potentialRun-producing corner outfielder.
