Scouting Report

AssetsAn elite offensive third baseman, he's a doubles machine who consistently bats for a high average and a good baserunner who piles up steals & rarely gets caught. Also takes walks and is a clutch RBI guy.
FlawsMakes a few too many errors at the hot corner. Sometimes presses too much at the plate, leading to high strikeout totals and big hitting slumps. At times, his motivation gets questioned because of his laidback ways.
Career potentialExcellent all-round third baseman.
