Scouting Report
Assets: Has ridiculously good speed and supreme quickness down the line to first base. Is an elite base-stealer who puts a ton of pressure on defenses. He's also becoming a more patient hitter at the dish, which only helps him.
Flaws: Struggles to hit for average with consistency, which limits his base-stealing impact. Also, he lacks power (mainly because of his slight frame). Struggles with nagging injuries, too. Is not aggressiveness enough on base.
Career Potential: Speedy, table-setting outfielder with some upside.
