Scouting Report

AssetsAt the dish, he's a great low-ball batter. Hits with good power, has good overall speed and the athleticism to play all three outfield positions. Has the ability to get red-hot with the stick.
FlawsQuite streaky, he gets into trouble when he starts chasing bad pitches. Could be more patient and disciplined at the plate (which would help him make more contact and get more out of his above-average talent).
Career potentialInconsistent but versatile and toolsy outfielder.
