Scouting Report
Is versatile enough to start at several different positions. Has good baseball instincts and is a hard worker. Boasts good plate discipline and nice pop in his bat from both sides of the plate. Runs well, too. Can be a bit of an all-or-nothing batter at times and could stand to improve his walk/strikeout ratio. His versatility can at times hinder his defensive ability, since he does not play every day at any one spot.
Long Range Potential: Quality, versatile switch-hitter who can play regularly anywhere in the field.
