Overall Summary
Switch-hitting shortstop w/ plus instincts and standout defensive tools. Light bat that likely prevents a future everyday profile. Ceiling of utility/reserve infielder, a defensive wizard who plays a plus SS and slides in all over the dirt. Needs to get stronger and improve at the plate.
