Scouting Report
Assets: A top-tier run producer with clutch ability, he is patient at the plate and hits with good power. Is a very good high-ball hitter, and he can tattoo mistake pitches when he guesses right. Boasts an accurate arm and is very dependable in left field.
Flaws: Strikes out far too much, which somewhat negates his great patience. He lacks consistency in the home-run department, as well as in terms of his batting average. Needs to prove he is not in decline with the bat.
Career Potential: Run-producing corner outfielder.
