Scouting Report

AssetsIs excellent defensively, with the arm to play shortstop and the versatility to play elsewhere in the infield. Has some speed and doesn't strike out too much.
FlawsNot an accomplished hitter, he doesn't take a lot of walks, doesn't hit for much extra-base power and doesn't steal enough bags, either--so he is not everyday material.
Career potentialBackup infielder.
