Scouting Report
A tremendous athlete and former high-school football quarterback, he has great speed and the range to play center field with aplomb. Also displays plenty of home-run potential due to his size and power. Lacks the ability to hit for average, which hurts his chances of playing every day in Major League Baseball. Gets fooled too often while at the dish. Does not take advantage enough of his speed when on base.
Long Range Potential: Athletic, toolsy but inconsistent outfielder.
