Scouting Report

AssetsAn intense player, he has good power and run-producing qualities from the shortstop position. In the field, he boasts a very strong arm and sound instincts for the position.
FlawsStrikes out too much and is also prone to nasty hitting slumps that hurt his overall value at the dish. Is also somewhat injury-prone. Isn't much of a base-stealer.
Career potentialPower-hitting, great-defending but inconsistent shortstop.
