Scouting Report: Center fielder with an outstanding hitter's frame. Fluid swing mechanics. Generates plus bat speed. Creates leverage with his swing to produce backspin. Can be defensive against fastballs, especially on the inner third. Needs to learn how to pull the ball. Average-to-better power potential. Quick hands with feel for how to hit. Solid-average hit tool, but below-average present pitch recognition and approach. Raw offensively. Above-average speed. Solid defensive instincts. Long, powerful strides when tracking fly balls. Will stick in center during early career. May end up moving to a corner outfield spot depending on how much he fills out. Fringe-average-to-average arm with room for improvement as he gains strength.
