Scouting Report

AssetsMakes solid contact and can play all three outfield positions. Also displays good plate coverage, pretty good speed and a bit of home-run power. Draws plenty of walks and rarely strikes out.
FlawsDoes he have enough power for an everyday corner outfielder? The jury is still out. Also, he needs to become a more effective base-stealer in order to maximize his table-setting ability.
Career potentialSolid outfielder table-setter.
