Scouting Report
A well-rounded talent, he boasts a nice line-drive bat with great patience, above-average power, some speed and a very good outfield arm. Sometimes, he strikes out far too much for a player with his skill set. Can also be a bit too streaky with the bat. Injuries are also a concern.
Long Range Potential: Well-rounded, veteran table-setting outfielder.
