Scouting Report

AssetsIs a tremendous athlete, which helps him greatly on defense at shortstop. Hits and runs well, and also has some pop in his bat. Is also an excellent base-stealer.
FlawsIs a little raw in most areas of baseball. Needs to cut down on his swing and become more patient at the plate. Still makes his share of errors at short, mostly mental.
Career potentialTable-setting shortstop with star defensive ability.
