Scouting Report
Has a great bat and is capable of hitting for a consistently high average. Makes solid contact without a lot of strikeouts. Can steal bases, too. Defensively, he is also very consistent with the glove (and sure-handed). If there is one thing he lacks, it is home-run power. A throwback middle infielder, he tends to settle for line drives (which would have played much better in a different era). His arm strength can also be questioned.
Long Range Potential: Quality, contact-hitting middle infielder with some upside.
