  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Journeyman outfielder with a large, filled-out frame.

Hit: Medium toe tap timing device. Very quick wrists. Keeps bat high in the box. Uppercut swing path. Good looking swing, but 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. 

Power: Plus raw power, has yet to translate in-game to anything beyond average power.

Run: Average speed, but not a stolen base threat.

Field: Capable of playing all three outfield positions adequately.

Arm: Strong arm. Above-average to plus.
  Career Notes: Was involved in Biogenesis scandal in August 2013 and received a 50-game suspension. Has already played for 8 different organizations. Signed with Boston just before the start of Spring Training in 2020. Played most of the 2020 season at the Alternate Training Site before being called up for the season's final eight days. Became a free agent after being outrighted following the 2020 season, but re-signed in December 2021. Received a non-roster invitation to Spring Training in 2021. Opened 2021 at the Alternate Training Site.

Summation: Profiles as emergency Triple-A depth who could serve as a 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.
