Scouting Report
Assets: Was a focused, smart and highly productive hitter. Extremely patient at the plate, he took plenty of walks and hit for good average and power. Also flashed a solid glove at either third or first base.
Flaws: Despite his superb patience, he still struck out a bit too much. Also didn't have the speed to steal bases regularly, nor did he have prodigious home-run power. His body could break down physically, too.
Career Potential: Extremely patient, versatile run-producing corner infielder.
