Hit 40 45 Slappy stroke geared to make contact. Over-aggressive swinger who expands the zone w/ limited pitch recognition, though above-avg bat-to-ball skill bails him out some. Batspeed and contact here for playable hit tool w/ tighter approach.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of versatile utility player w/ above-avg wheels and defensive value given ability to play different positions. Don't see the bat for an everyday role but speed and center-diamond defensive profile help raise the floor.
