Scouting Report: Athletic player with fast twitch reactions. Compact swing. Quick hands that generate plus bat speed. Swing is on the level side. Needs work keeping hands inside of the ball and using his hips more to create drive. Swing can get choppy. Will have to learn to use the whole field consistently as professional career begins to progress. Ability to create a lot of contact. Below-average power potential. Profiles as a gap-to-gap hitter, who can learn when to muscle up from time to time. Shows eye to differentiate pitches, but can be impatient during an at-bat. Solid-average runner, who projects to steal the occasional base. Fluid actions at shortstop. Solid-average-to-plus range. Quick first step. Level of engagement can drift. Has the tools to be a plus defender at the position. Plus arm. Knows when he needs his arm. Not much more room for physical development. Will need to maintain athleticism with age. Projects to stick up the middle. Profiles as a major league regular who hits at the bottom of the order, but still needs offensive development to get to that point.
