Scouting Report: Solid athlete with developed body. Struggled initially upon signing as he had some kinks in his swing and adjusted to life as a professional. Plus bat speed with quick wrists. Average hit tool, but plays down due to below-average  pitch recognition and overly aggressive approach. Generates strong lift and post-contact extension with his swing. Can be slow with his load, but has made strides reducing wrap in his swing. Discipline needs refinement to maintain enough of an average at the major-league level. Tends to chase hard breaking balls off the plate and elevated fastballs. Slow picking up the spin of breaking balls at times. Needs to keep weight back consistently. Solid-average-to-plus power potential. Ability to hit 20-25 home runs at big league level in peak seasons. Can hit with power to all fields and uses hands well when keeping them back during his stride. Does not project to accumulate high walk totals. Fringe-average speed. Plus arm. Profiles as a major league right fielder. Improving with his routes and judgment on balls. Tends to pull his glove up early when charging balls. Ceiling of an everyday right fielder at the big league level, but may be better suited for a second division lineup.
