Scouting Report
Has a very strong and accurate throwing arm in the outfield, and he's a tremendous defender in general. Can hit for average at all levels and is fundamentally sound. Doesn't have a lot of home-run power, so he does not own a lot of offensive consistency at the highest level. Does not draw enough walks, either.
Long Range Potential: Elite defensive outfielder.
