Scouting Report
Assets: Has the ability to play all over the field. Furthermore, he is a switch-hitter with a strong arm and great speed. All of that makes for a very versatile performer for Major League Baseball.
Flaws: If he ever is to become anything more than a quality utility man, he will need to cut down on his strikeout rate. Also, while he has the arm for shortstop, he profiles best at second base.
Career Potential: Speedy utility man with a little upside.
