Scouting Report
Is a very good hitter for average, with some home-run power too. Is a run producer who mashes against left-handed pitching but is not as prolific against right-handers. Also owns a great arm for right field (but can also played first base). May not hit as many home runs at the highest level as others, which hurts his overall value in Major League Baseball. Could also stand to steal more bases.
Long Range Potential: Solid, versatile right-handed batter.
