Scouting Report
Has very good base-stealing speed, pretty decent pop in his bat and the ability to make consistent contact at the dish. His speed is also an asset in the outfield. Could stand to be more efficient in his stolen-base attempts, since he tends to get caught stealing a lot. Also, his home-run power is somewhat limited for MLB.
Long Range Potential: Speedy outfielder.
