The Red Sox have acquired Yoenis Cespedes from the Oakland Athletics, but what kind of player is coming back to Boston?

CSN Bay Area's Athletics Insider Joe Stiglich gives the scouting report on the outfielder.

"With Cespedes the Red Sox are getting one of the most physically gifted, most electric players in the Major Leagues," said Stiglich. "He's got a lot of power as we've seen in the past two home run derbys"

"He can also be a frustrating player at times," continued Stiglich. "I think he'll do things you'll say, 'I can't believe he did that' in a good way. He may also do some bad things and make you say 'I can't believe he did that' because he still makes some errors, takes bad routes on balls sometimes, sometimes misjudge some balls in left field, still chases balls out of the strike zone sometimes."
