Scouting Report

AssetsHas all the tools for stardom: excellent speed, good power, a nice glove with range, a strong throwing arm and the ability to bat for a good average. He's an excellent athlete and plenty versatile, both offensively and defensively.
FlawsHe's a bit of a free swinger who strikes out too much and would benefit by being more patient at the dish and up his walk totals. Also needs to improve his approach against lefty pitchers. Can be somewhat injury-prone, too.
Career potentialExcellent all-round outfielder with natural talent.
