Scouting Report

AssetsExcellent athletically and blessed with a huge frame, he has good power and base-stealing ability. Has defensive versatility in the outfield.
FlawsLacks focus at times, which has hurt his development and ability to receive regular at-bats in the bigs. Swings far too freely and strikes out too much.
Career potentialToolsy outfielder.
