Scouting Report
Assets: A great athlete with excellent size and mobility, he hits the ball with huge power. Has the instincts and talent to be a star in all aspects of the game.
Flaws: Strikes out too much and forces things at the plate sometimes. Also, his outfield defense is still a work in progress. Is not much of a base-stealer.
Career Potential: Veteran, power-hitting outfielder.
