Scouting Report
Can hit anything thrown to him for doubles and homers, while making great contact. Is gifted athletically and boasts a terrific power swing. A prolific producer, he is also fast enough to regularly steal bases. Is not a top-tier defender (although he has a superb throwing arm), and is a bit raw in the outfield. Does tend to strike out a bit too much. Injuries and a performance-enhancing drug issue are also problems.
Long Range Potential: Outstanding hitter and run producer, when healthy.
