Scouting Report: Small-framed infielder, capable of playing several positions. Compact swing that generates solid-average bat speed. Will need to develop inside-out swing further in higher levels to produce enough contact. Below-average power potential. Profiles as a gap hitter with the potential to hit doubles. Average hit tool. Plus speed. Able to play second, shortstop, and third base. Solid-average range at shortstop. Fluid with actions, but can stay back on the ball too much. Solid-average arm with inconsistent accuracy. Utility infielder projection. Has tried catching and playing outfield during the offseason, but yet to play either during the season.
