Scouting Report

AssetsHas a very good bat for a middle infielder, including pretty good pop and switch-hitting ability. Runs pretty well, too. Defensively, he is versatile enough to play either shortstop or second base.
FlawsStruggles as a right-handed batter, especially in terms of striking out too much. Also displays only average tools for the shortstop position, so second base may be his calling in the future.
Career potentialOffensive middle infielder with upside.
