Scouting Report
Assets: A superlative athlete, he has great range in center field and a plus arm. He can also use his legs on the basepaths to steal bases. Has some power and is a switch-hitter, which adds to his value.
Flaws: Strikes out a lot for someone with only average home-run power. Isn't as good a hitter from the left side of the plate, which hurts his overall value. Doesn't always make the most of his gifts.
Career Potential: Athletic, inconsistent switch-hitting outfielder.
