Scouting Report
Is a pure hitter with excellent hands and great instincts at the dish. Is also a switch-hitter, which adds to his overall value for MLB. Can play both the outfield and in the infield (especially second base). Though he does walk a fair amount, he could stand to curb his tendency to strike out a lot in order to maximize production in Major League Baseball. Also needs to find his defensive niche.
Long Range Potential: Excellent, versatile hitter with good upside.
