Scouting Report
Blessed with a nice line-drive swing, he can pile up doubles and hit for a good average. Will hit for some power and does not strike out too much, either. Runs pretty well and can play several positions in the field. Is only average with the glove, anywhere on the field. Also lacks optimum power and has a tendency to be streaky at the dish. Must continue to work on the mental aspects of the game, and not let errors bother him.
Long Range Potential: Quality, versatile infielder and left-handed hitter.
