Scouting Report

AssetsOwns a big shortstop arm and has great range and defensive skills. In fact, he's among the best defenders in the game. At the plate, his bat control and ability to make consistent contact stand out.
FlawsNeeds to fill out his 6-2 frame if he is ever to become a power hitter and/or big run producer at the big-league level. Also needs to become a better, more efficient base-stealer in the bigs.
Career potentialOutstanding defensive shortstop with a little upside.
