Scouting Report
Assets: Switch-hits with pretty good pop in his bat. Can play several infield positions, which adds to his overall value. Will take his walks, too.
Flaws: Is a bit too stiff in the field. Tends to strike out a fair amount for his power level and doesn't steal enough bases to make up for it.
Career Potential: Backup infielder with a little upside.
