Scouting Report
Assets: Has a very good bat in the minors, including pretty good pop and switch-hitting ability. Runs pretty well, too. Defensively, he is versatile enough to play all over the field.
Flaws: Struggles as a right-handed batter, especially in terms of striking out too much. Also displays only average tools for the infield, so the outfield may be his calling in the bigs.
Career Potential: Offensive, versatile switch-hitter with a little upside.
