Scouting Report
: Dominican shortstop who signed with the Red Sox in May 2008. Small frame. Unlikely to add a lot of muscle. Athletic, with smooth and fluid reactions. Soft glove and quick hands. Solid-average-to-better range. Shows ability to cover ground to both his left and right via smooth first step. Solid-average arm, but inaccurate. Tends to rush plays in the field leading to unforced errors. Possesses defensive tools to round into above-average defender. Level of concentration and consistent output of effort must improve. Tendency to float and drift for stretches. Generates solid-average batspeed, but swing is on the long side. Struggles to square pitches up, especially off-speed stuff. Below-average pitch recognition and over-aggressive approach. Below-average power ceiling. Plus speed. Offensive progression is tied into improving levels of contact by eliminating hole on outer third, developing approach, and incorporating hands into swing to hit inside the baseball.
