Scouting Report

AssetsOwns surprising power for his smallish frame and is a good athlete. Has a very good outfield arm and can play all three positions with aplomb. Can go on tremendous hot streaks with the bat. Is a clutch performer.
FlawsSwings too freely and would benefit a lot by taking more pitches (and ultimately more walks), and he also strikes out too much. Doesn't take steal a lot of bases, despite being a versatile athlete. Can be injury-prone.
Career potentialVersatile veteran outfielder.
