Scouting Report

AssetsA very good hitter with patience and the ability to get on base consistently with either walks or base hits. A doubles machine, he is versatile enough to play several different positions.
FlawsTook some time finding his everyday position at the major league level. Also, his power doesn't really stand out, especially at third base, nor does his base-stealing ability.
Career potentialExcellent table-setting infielder.
