Scouting Report

AssetsHas outstanding speed and quickness, which he uses prodigiously both on the bases and afield. Is blessed with excellent athleticism and a lanky frame that he uses to his advantage.
FlawsWould benefit greatly from adding more bulk to his frame, as well as more patience at the dish, in order to become more of a factor when at the plate. Lacks some power.
Career potentialSlick shortstop with some upside.
