Scouting Report
Assets: Was well-rounded: played a very good second base while consistently displaying patience and base-running efficiency on offense. Was also good at moving runners ahead of him and generally doing the little things.
Flaws: Was a bit injury-prone. Also didn't always hit for a high batting average, which limited his on-base ability and lessened his overall value. Was always more of a complementary player than a focal point, especially on offense.
Career Potential: Solid second baseman.
