Scouting Report

AssetsPossesses superb size for the shortstop spot and is a good athlete with a strong arm and excellent, raw power. Rangy and fast, he possesses all-around ability.
FlawsNeeds more work on his discipline (both as a hitter and as a base-runner), since he strikes out way too much and doesn't draw nearly enough walks at the plate.
Career potentialGood all-round shortstop.
