Walter on Poteet
"DJ has successfully made the transition from infield to outfield and is competing for the every day center field job. He has shown great instincts and routes in the outfield, as well as good barrel awareness from both sides of the plate. DJ is a dynamic player with huge upside. He will play a ton this year."
