Scouting Report
Assets: Is a tremendous athlete, which helps him greatly on defense at shortstop. Hits and runs well, and also has some pop in his bat. Is also an excellent runner and base-stealer.
Flaws: Lacks patience at the plate, and his swing has a tendency to get a bit too long at times (especially for his level of power). Still makes his share of errors at short, mostly mental.
Career Potential: Quality, all-round shortstop.
