Scouting Report
Possesses superb size and is a good athlete with a strong arm and excellent, raw power. Rangy and fast, he possesses all-around ability at several positions. Needs more work on his discipline (both as a hitter and as a base runner), since he strikes out way too much and doesn't draw nearly enough walks at the plate.
Long Range Potential: Athletic, versatile everyday player.
