Scouting Report
Assets: Takes pitches and is quite patient. Possesses good on-base skills, plus base-stealing speed and some pop in his bat. Can cover the ground in center field, but can also play either corner position.
Flaws: Could stand to improve his hitting ability against left-handed pitching so as to maximize his impact as a leadoff man. Also lacks high-end home-run power for the big leagues.
Career Potential: Speedy table-setting outfielder.
