Scouting Report
A unique mix of size, power, speed and skill, he is also very mature and has a great approach to the game--including good plate patience. Is also excellent defensively and does the little things well to help his team win ball games. Needs to keep refining his game in all areas to maximize his significant potential. Must also be able to handle the pressure of being a much-ballyhooed prospect. Also, can he hit left-handed pitching as well as righties?
Long Range Potential: Talented, athletic and versatile outfielder.
