Scouting Report: Journeyman outfielder with a large, filled-out frame. Medium toe tap timing device. Very quick wrists. Keeps bat high in the box. Uppercut swing path. Good looking swing, can get long on occasion. Average hit tool.  Impatient approach, swings at a lot of pitches outside the zone. Struggles against advanced breaking stuff, especially against right-handers.  Plus raw power, has yet to translate in game to anything beyond average power. Average speed, but not a stolen base threat. Capable of playing all three outfield positions adequately. Strong arm. Was involved in Biogenesis scandal in August 2013 and received a 50-game suspension. Has already played for 8 different organizations. Profiles as emergency Triple-A depth that could serve as a valuable fourth outfielder at the major league level for a stretch.

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