Field 45 50 Playable SS, though average athleticism and straightline speed make him an average-at-best defender at SS. Coordinated actions, soft hands, reliable glove who makes routine plays but lacks impact range.

Throw 55 55 Above-AVG arm that allows him to play a step deeper at SS to give himself more range; carries across the infield; enough arm to remain on left-side of infield if he moves from SS.
