Scouting Report

AssetsEmployed a very solid doubles swing from both sides of the plate. Was the ultimate team guy, and could play all over the infield. Proved effective as a pinch-hitter.
FlawsWas never a very patient batter. Lacked consistency throughout his career, which often prevented him from nailing down regular playing time.
Career potentialVeteran pinch-hitter and backup infielder.
