Scouting Report
Assets: Is a very good hitter for average, with some untapped home-run power too. Also owns a great arm for right field (but can also played first base).
Flaws: May not hit a lot of home runs at the highest level, which hurts his overall value in Major League Baseball. Could also stand to steal more bases.
Career Potential: Versatile, right-handed bat.
