Scouting Report: Small infielder who had a tremendous career at Arizona State. Average power for a middle infielder, with good bat speed and excellent plate discipline. Loves the game and has fantastic instincts. Plays top-notch defense up the middle - he was named the 2003 Collegiate Defensive Player of the Year. Very scrappy, said to be a great teammate. Oozes confidence. Has pro experience at both shortstop and second base; likely will stick at second base through his big-league career. Coming out of the minors, scouts projected Pedroia as a dependable second baseman at the major-league level. However, he has proven to be an All-Star caliber player.
