Scouting Report
Is a smooth fielder with excellent hands, so he is capable of playing shortstop in Major League Baseball. A switch-hitter, he hits to all fields from both sides of the plate and displays burgeoning power. Can also steal a base. For now, he still makes way too many errors (something he must cut down on in order to stick at the shortstop position in the big leagues). At times, he can be guilty of being too non-chalant in the field. Lacks patience.
Long Range Potential: Slick-fielding, switch-hitting middle infielder with upside.
