Scouting Report
Has good hitting instincts, patience at the plate and some base-stealing acumen. Is versatile afield. Makes a lot of contact and is adept at 'little ball'. Is a good defender in MLB. Does not boast a lot of power at the dish, which limits his ability to be an everyday player in the bigs. Could stand to be more efficient when on base. Lacks offensive consistency.
Long Range Potential: Versatile, veteran backup infielder.
