Scouting Report
Assets: Has very good pop in his bat and a lot of speed for running the bases. Is steady afield. A gamer, he can be trusted to be in the lineup every day. Boasts outstanding bat control.
Flaws: Is quite undersized at only 5-6, 165 pounds, so it is always going to be a constant battle for him to prove himself in Major League Baseball (though he has done so repeatedly).
Career Potential: Elite second baseman.
