Scouting Report

AssetsDisplays outstanding bat control and a quick bat through the strike zone. Can spray the ball all over the field, and can also draw walks. Rarely strikes out. Is versatile with the glove. Can steal bases.
FlawsOwns virtually no home-run power at all, which limits his at-bats at the big-league level. Also, he doesn't really have a position to call his own so he will always be labeled a bench player.
Career potentialVersatile, speedy utility man.
