Scouting Report

AssetsDisplays good versatility afield, as well as sound fundamentals and a fairly good glove. Can steal bases, too. Is well loved by teammates (and also fans).
FlawsDoesn't own much pop in his bat at all, so he's more of a backup than everyday player at the highest level. Lacks the consistency of an everyday player.
Career potentialVersatile backup infielder.
