Scouting Report

AssetsOwns excellent defensive instincts for the shortstop position, plus a great arm and plenty of speed. Is also a good base-runner, switch-hitter and pretty good power hitter.
FlawsCan be a bit lazy at times in the field, and lacks discipline at the dish (he chases way too many pitches out of the strike zone). Must start making more of his overall ability.
Career potentialToolsy shortstop with upside.
