Scouting Report

AssetsSwings with near-elite power, an impressive quality for a second baseman. Shows a strong ability as a run producer. Does a great job taking walks, so he's regularly on base. Is intense and has leadership qualities.
FlawsStrikes out at eye-popping rates and struggles to bat for a good average. Is way too streaky at the plate. Also, he is not efficient as a base-runner. While not sub-par defensively, he can be streaky with the glove, as well.
Career potentialInconsistent power-hitting second baseman.
