Scouting Report
Assets: Is versatile enough to start at several different positions. Has good baseball instincts and is a hard worker. Boasts good plate discipline and nice pop in his bat from both sides of the plate. Runs well, too.
Flaws: Can be a bit of an all-or-nothing batter at times and could stand to improve his walk/strikeout ratio. His versatility can at times hinder his defensive ability, since he doesn't play every day at any one spot.
Career Potential: Versatile switch-hitter who can play regularly anywhere.
