Scouting Report

AssetsHas pretty good home-run pop in his bat, plus decent plate patience, for a middle infielder. Can also steal a few bases. Displays excellent arm strength.
FlawsLacks offensive consistency at the dish, which hurts his chances of playing every day over the long haul. Lacks a bit of quickness when playing shortstop.
Career potentialDecent offensive infielder with a little upside.
