Scouting Report

AssetsVery fast on the basepaths, he was good at stealing bases and rarely got caught. Displayed solid defense at second base. Had a pretty good batting eye.
FlawsDidn't have a lot of power. His approach against left-handed pitching wasn't very good, so he struggled against most of them throughout his career.
Career potentialSpeedy platoon second baseman.
