Scouting Report

AssetsIs very good defensively, with both range and a strong arm. Has legitimate home-run pop in his bat and can be a solid RBI producer. Has developed more consistency (both offensively and defensively) with age.
FlawsIs highly injury-prone. Swings for the fences too much, leading to streakiness and high strikeout totals. Doesn't have much patience at the plate, so his walk/strikeout ratio is usually ugly. Struggles when he plays too much.
Career potentialGood defensive infielder with home-run pop.
