Overall Summary
Cameron shows the raw tools to be an average hitter but his approach, aggression and tendency to give away at-bats drops his projection down. Cameron can handle centerfield which is a plus in his profile. He has 50-upside future potential, but overall Cameron has average to below-average tools across the board, and realistically profiles best as a spare outfielder who can spot start in center.
