Scouting Report

AssetsIs well-rounded: plays a very good second base while consistently displaying patience and base-running efficiency on offense. Is very good at moving runners ahead of him, and generally doing the little things.
FlawsIs a bit injury-prone. Also doesn't always hit for a high batting average, which limits his on-base ability and lessens his overall value. Has always been more of a complementary player than a focal point.
Career potentialVeteran second baseman.
