Scouting Report
A top athlete with supreme instincts on the basepaths, he is a constant steals threat. Very fast, he can run down almost anything in the outfield. Gets on base consistently thanks to a great eye, a sweet swing and patience. Does not have much of a throwing arm in the outfield. Durability has been questioned at times in his career, as he has endured a lot of injury issues. Lacks consistency against left-handed pitching. Is declining rapidly with age.
Long Range Potential: Veteran, table-setting outfielder in decline.
