Scouting Report
Assets: Has all the required tools: excellent speed, good power, a nice glove with range, a strong throwing arm and the ability to bat for a good average. He is an excellent athlete and plenty versatile (offensively and defensively).
Flaws: Is quite prone to injury. He is a bit of a free swinger who strikes out too much and would benefit by being more selective at the dish. Also, he can be rather inconsistent at the plate versus left-handed pitching.
Career Potential: Talented, veteran outfielder.
