Scouting Report
: Versatile bench player capable of playing corner outfield positions and first base.  Can play center field in a pinch. Fringe-average hit tool.  Swing is on the long side and can trigger on slowly.  Tends to swing and miss too much.  Creates leverage with hips. Solid-average power potential. Struggles with advanced off-speed stuff.  Leads to being prone to striking out.  Below-average speed.  Average defender at first base and in left field.  Doesn't have the range to play center field or right field in more than an emergency. Average arm.  Projects as bench player at the major league level, capable of filling in during stretches.
