Overall Summary
High energy, aggressive, plus runner with some potential value as an extra outfielder. He has as short stroke with some hand speed; keeps the ball on the ground utilizing his run tool, but expands the zone and has too much swing and miss for his skillset. Has some gap pop, but no real power projection. Above-average athlete, but plays deep and gets poor reads in the gaps; lacks the instincts to impact on defense, keeping him out of a fifth-outfielder role. Aggressive base runner, looks to show off speed and take the extra base. His aggressive approach plays up in the Cal League, but he will need to show improved plate discipline at the next level.
