Scouting Report

AssetsHad as much versatility as any player in the game. With the bat, he could drive the ball to all fields. Displayed good bat control. Had range and a good arm for the infield and outfield.
FlawsHe would often be fooled by fastballs up in the zone, as that was his weakness. Would at times fall flat in clutch situations. Didn't hit consistently well enough to play every day.
Career potentialSuper utility man.
