Scouting Report

AssetsAn athletic player, he puts his all into everything he does on the field. Excels at small ball: bunting, running and playing excellent defense. Can play all over the infield. Is a leader.
FlawsHas been known to play too hard at times, which leads to injuries. As a switch-hitter, he's far less effective from the left side of the plate. Doesn't hit with enough consistency, overall.
Career potentialVeteran utility infielder.
