Scouting Report: Right-handed hitting corner infielder is slightly undersized, but has shown impressive hitting ability. Potential to have an above-average hit tool. Compact swing lends itself to hard contact to all fields. Swing lacks loft, but still has shown above-average raw power. Excellent approach and strong bat-to-ball skills. Tracks pitches, works counts and understands the strike zone. Fringe-average runner and average defender at first base.
