Scouting Report
Assets: Has some pop in his bat and decent mobility. Is slick defensively at the keystone position. Can also play third base (and even shortstop in a pinch).
Flaws: Must cut down on his swing, since he goes for the fences too much and ends up striking out a lot. Lacks consistency in his game, in general. Doesn't run much.
Career Potential: Solid, versatile infielder.
