Scouting Report

AssetsCan hit for average and some power, and is also a fairly good run-producer at the minor-league level. Displays a very strong arm, too. His plate discipline is also solid.
FlawsDoesn't have a lot of speed, so he won't ever be a big base-stealer in Major League Baseball. Also, he must prove capable of hitting with enough consistency to play every day.
Career potentialDecent infielder.
