Scouting Report

AssetsPossesses a nice mix of bat speed and athleticism. Can crush a high fastball. While not speedy, he's fairly mobile and can manage fairly well at all three outfield spots. Mashes lefty pitchers.
FlawsHas been somewhat injury-prone throughout his career. Sometimes he presses at the plate, leading to streakiness, strikeout binges and mediocre batting averages. Isn't an everyday player.
Career potentialVersatile backup outfielder.
