MiLB Stats
Overall Summary
Athletic middle infielder with plus bat speed and extra base hit potential. Has some swing and miss, will expand when down in count, but sees pitches and has some on-base potential. Smooth, easy actions and gets carry to the gaps. Works underneath the ball on the outer half, loses some juice vs. LHP, but stays short to the ball and see him getting on top better as he gets stronger. Future move to second base. Will catch what he can get to; tools to be above average, but tends to get lackadaisical at times.
