Scouting Report: Athletic infielder, with medium build. Switch hitter. Tends to open hips early from left side of the plate and drag head of the bat through the zone. Lacks batspeed from both sides of the plate. Minimal present power. Does not project to add much power to his game. Patience approach. Looks for offerings in his zone, but does not drive the ball well. Fringe-average speed. Sure-handed with the glove. Needs improvement with reads off the bat and reactions to the ball. Injuries have stalled development.
