Scouting Report: Medium-framed outfielder from Louisville. Starts open and utilizes a leg lift, closing down as the pitch approaches. Has a short swing and has shown an all-fields approach with a level swing path. Average plate discipline with a professional approach. Potential below-average hit tool. Well below-average power potential. Gap power at best. Average speed. Above-average arm. Capable of playing all three outfield positions at an above-average level, but best suited for right field. Good teammate. Gamer type with plus makeup. Played four years at Louisville before being drafted by Boston. Profiles as organizational outfielder who could stick around in the high minors as long as he wants to play.
