Scouting Report
: Advanced defensive center fielder with above-average range and the instincts to get solid reads on balls off the bat. Good closing speed. Moves well from gap-to-gap. Average, accurate arm with a quick release. Compact swing. Generates solid-average bat speed, but has the tendency to hook his swing and over-pull. Average present power with quick bat. Will have to show ability to hit advanced secondary pitches for power to translate into game action. Attacks strikes, but needs to be more selective with which ones he can handle. On the older side for a Cuban defector.
