Scouting Report
Assets: Owns plenty of positional versatility (he can play both in the outfield and infield), which adds value to a big-league squad. Can steal bases and hit for average at lower levels.
Flaws: Doesn't have a position to call his own, so his prospects for MLB would be best served in a utility role. Lacks optimum home-run power. Gets caught stealing a bit too much.
Career Potential: Decent utility man.
