Field 45 45 No true position; handles routine plays at second base, but lacks range for extended time at shortstop; enough run for center field - long strides and gets good reads; value in super-utility role.

Overall Summary
Over achieving right-handed hitter with some super-utility value on defense. Is a good athlete, but has some effort to the actions. Bit of an ambush approach at the plate; can be pesky and shows fringe-average plate discipline. Not going to be a power guy; creates top spin, limited carry on the line drives. Has struggled recognizing spin, rolls over on offspeed stuff away. Fringe-average defender at second; can handle all three outfield positions for a stretch. Not a true base stealer, but is a threat to run; best going 1st-to-3rd; could score from 1st on a double. Plays hard; role player. Club likely looking to upgrade if he made it onto 25-man roster. Comparable to Adam Rosales at major league level.
