An outfielder, he competed for time among a loaded bunch including Ken Griffey, Jay Buhner, and Glenallen Hill. In five games, he was 1-for-7 at the plate with a pair of RBI.

He had moderate power, with as many as 13 home runs in a season, and some speed, with as many as 20 stolen bases in a season.
