Scouting Report: Right-handed hitter with an average frame. No remaining projection. Long swing, lacks bat speed. Struggles with velocity, especially up in the zone. Fringe-average raw power. Shows gap power in game with occasional over-the-fence power. Well below-average speed. Primarily a third baseman, but can also play first base and corner outfield. Average arm and good hands but lacks range. Intelligent and hard-working. Gets the most out of his tools. Great teammate, strong instincts. Solid high minors organizational player who you feel comfortable that he can play everyday at a variety of positions and hold his own at the plate. Undrafted out of high school. Played four seasons at TCU, earning all-conference first team honors in 2011 and second team honors in 2012 and 2013. Has been a reliable corner infielder since being drafted by the Red Sox in the 24th round in 2013. Made South Atlantic League All-Star team in 2014 and Eastern League All-Star team in 2015.
