Scouting Report
Assets: Productive offensively, he can set the table at the top of the order and has pretty good power for a guy with diminutive size. Is willing to take free passes, helping him get on base. Has always featured a great arm.
Flaws: Injuries have taken a toll on him over time. Takes too big of a cut for a table-setter, sometimes leading to too many strikeouts and inconsistent batting averages. Doesn't run as much as he used to.
Career Potential: Injury-prone veteran table-setter.
