Scouting Report
Is a very good hitter with patience and the ability to get on base consistently with either walks or base hits. A doubles machine, he is versatile enough to play several different positions. Has taken some time to find his everyday position at the major league level. Also, his power is somewhat limited and he has virtually no base-stealing ability to speak of.
Long Range Potential: Excellent, versatile infielder.
