Scouting Report

AssetsVersatile, he can do a little of everything well, both offensively and defensively. Hits for a solid average, steals bases and has a little pop in his bat. Can play several positions and hit while coming off the bench .
FlawsDoes a lot of things well but does not stand out in any. Hits far better against righties, suggesting he's best suited to platoon duty (or a bench role). Can also be injury-prone.
Career potentialVeteran utility player and bat off the bench.
