However the speed he has allows him to beat the infield with regularity, steal bases and provide such quality defense in centre field that it considerably improves his floor, and his ceiling could be similar to a Keston Hiura that can play defense. Given the thorn in the side Harrison Bader has been f
This is a big statement, I know, but hear me out on this one, and you might find the two are a lot more similar that you’d originally think.
