Scouting Report

AssetsHas a very strong arm, quick feet and the versatility to play all over the field, though second base is his natural position. Owns pretty good gap power and speed.
FlawsHis walk/strikeout ratio leaves a lot to be desired, and prevents him from becoming a better big-league hitter overall. Also lacks consistency in Major League Baseball.
Career potentialVeteran journeyman utility man.
