Scouting Report
Assets: A superlative athlete, he has great range in the outfield and a plus arm. Can also use his legs on the basepaths to steal bases. Has some power, is a switch-hitter and can play all three outfield positions with aplomb.
Flaws: Strikes out a lot for someone with only average home-run power. Is not as good a hitter from the left side of the plate, which hurts his overall playing time. Does not always make the most of his gifts.
Career Potential: Athletic, inconsistent switch-hitting outfielder.
