Scouting Report
Assets: Has tremendous bat speed and can generate a wealth of power. Aside from being a pure hitter, he helps himself offensively by stealing bases. In the field, he has a great throwing arm and pretty good feet.
Flaws: As he continues to grow, the shortstop position may not be an option at the big-league level. Also, he needs to tone down his act a little when between the lines, since he can grate on opponents now and then.
Career Potential: Versatile, power-hitting infielder with some upside.
