Scouting Report

AssetsIs extremely patient and has a nice power stroke, making him an above-average offensive infielder. Has pretty good speed, too. Is versatile afield.
FlawsIsn't a top-fielding infielder. Can be a streaky and all-or-nothing hitter at the dish (waiting for walks or perfect pitches), so he hits for a middling average.
Career potentialGood-hitting, average-fielding but versatile player.
