Scouting Report

AssetsHas outstanding speed and tremendous base-stealing acumen. Can put pressure on defenses when he hits the ball on the ground. Switch-hits and plays both in the infield and outfield.
FlawsHas serious defensive deficiencies at second base, which limits his playing time there in MLB. Also strikes out far too much for a player who lacks power. Is also a bit too impatient at the plate.
Career potentialSpeedy leadoff and utility man.
