Scouting Report

AssetsIs a patient hitter with excellent plate discipline and pretty good speed. Can play all three outfield positions. Always hustles and plays with great energy.
FlawsDoesn't have a lot of power and his speed isn't enough to make up for it. Struggles against left-handed pitching. Is prone to injury because of his all-out style.
Career potentialEnergetic backup outfielder.
