Scouting Report

AssetsHas a great arm and the ability to play a solid second base. Boasts good home-run power. Is improving his ability to make contact. Works hard.
FlawsLacks consistency as a hitter, particularly in the power department. Isn't a big guy, so he can slow down late in the season because he never lets up.
Career potentialAverage second baseman with some upside.
