Scouting Report

AssetsHas a legitimate shortstop arm, burgeoning power and the speed to steal bases. Can be a true doubles machine due to very good bat speed. Owns all the tools for stardom.
FlawsIs mercurial and needs to play more of a fundamental game, in general. Could stand to draw more walks so as to maximize his potential as an offensive catalyst. Is too nonchalant in the field. Must mature.
Career potentialInconsistent but very talented shortstop with good upside.
