Scouting Report

AssetsWas steady and occasionally spectacular in the middle infield. Had good pop in his bat. Was also a clutch performer who made good contact and had good base-running ability. Could play both shortstop and second base.
FlawsWas not great at hanging in there for bases on balls, as he was a free swinger. Didn't have a cannon arm for shortstop and his range declined with time. Despite a clutch RBI bat, he didn't have a lot of power.
Career potentialSteady, clutch infielder and leader.
