Scouting Report
Assets: Blessed with a nice line-drive swing, he can pile up doubles and hit for a good average. Will hit for some power and does not strike out too much, either. Runs pretty well and can play several positions in the field.
Flaws: Is only average with the glove, anywhere on the field. Also lacks optimum power and has a tendency to be streaky at the dish. Must continue to work on the mental aspects of the game, and not let errors bother him.
Career Potential: Quality, versatile infielder and left-handed hitter.
