Walter on Long
"Christian is a good athlete with excellent bat speed and power. When he can stay right-center focused he is a dangerous and versatile hitter. He will see time for us in all three outfield positions and has a chance to be an every-day player if he can become a little more consistent in stringing together quality at bats."
