Scouting Report
His plus hands help him generate very good bat speed at the plate. Can hit the long ball but is also capable of producing a good batting average at all levels. Defensively, he boasts a very strong throwing arm. Is still growing, so he might outgrow the shortstop position over time. Therefore, he could lose some value at the big-league level if forced to move to either second or third base. Strikeouts are a bit of a problem.
Long Range Potential: Talented, powerful infielder with upside.
