Scouting Report
Is an excellent hitter with great hands, plate coverage and bat speed. Also displays quality run-producing qualities. Makes consistent contact and does not strike out a lot. Doesn't have monster home-run power, nor does he run very well. Defensively, he is only average (at best) with the glove. Could stand to draw more walks to make him even better.
Long Range Potential: Quality third baseman with upside.
