Assets: Is extremely versatile in the field, as he can play all over the outfield and some infield positions too (which adds great value for Major League Baseball). Owns both speed and power.
Flaws: Could stand to improve his walk/strikeout ratio to maximize offensive output at the dish. Is not as dependable in the field as teams normally want in an everyday player in the bigs.
Career Potential: Utility man with a little upside.
