Scouting Report
Assets: Is fantastic defensively thanks to a great glove at shortstop. Reads plays extremely well, has superb reflexes and a good arm. Shows some pop with the bat. Can also steal a base.
Flaws: Is severely lacking in the power department, which limits his run-producing capabilities. Also, leg injuries have been an issue during his development years and they may fester.
Career Potential: Great defensive shortstop with a little offensive upside.
