  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Powerful, athletic, well-built frame. No remaining projection.

Hit: Fringe-average hit tool. Open stance, slightly off balance. Level swing plane, hits to all fields. Below-average pitch recognition but decent approach. 

Power: Above-average power when he makes contact. Solid extra base and home run potential.

Run: Above-average to plus speed.

Field: Average defender capabale of playing all three outfield positions. Better suited for corner at this stage, does not make the best reads on balls for center field.

Arm: Average arm.
  Career Notes: Southern Conference Freshman of the Year in 2013. Drafted by the Twins in 2015, unspectacular production in 2016-2017, but then named an All-Star in both 2018 and 2019. Traded to San Francisco at the trade deadline in 2019 along with two other players for Sam Dyson. Struggled in limited MLB time with the Giants. Missed a large chunk of 2021 with left knee tendonitis. Claimed off waivers by Boston in April 2022. Designated for assignment and cleared outright waivers in May 2022.

Summation: Profiles as an emergency up-and-down outfielder. Has the ability to provide value due to power and speed combination and ability to play all outfield positions. Ceiling of a long-term fill in or 4th/5th outfielder.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
