  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Average-sized frame. Sturdy and fully filled-out. Has a great build for a thir baseman; on the larger size for a middle infielder.

Hit: Has shown flashes of an above-average hit tool, and perhaps even plus potential, as an amateur and up the minor league ladder. Good timing, quick writsts, above-average bat control. Doesn't strike out a ton. Has been too agressive during major league opportunites. Struggles against righties.

Power: Below to fringe-average present power. 10-15 home run potential.

Run: Fringe-average runner. Stolen bases won't be a part of his game.

Field: Plus defender at thir base and second base. Fringe-average defender at shortstop, but can serve as an emergency backup there.

Arm: Average, accurate arm.
  Career Notes: Played for the gold-medal US National Team at the 2013 18U Baseball World Cup, where he was named MVP. Selected in the first round in 2013, considered a bit of an overdraft at the time. Played in the AFL in 2015. Generally considered a top 100 prospect in the game from 2016-2018. Missed time in 2017 ater getting hit in the hand twice. Included in a trade for Evan Longoria the next off-season. Traded to Cleveland in July 2019. Missed a portion of 2019 with right forearm tendonitis. DFA'd by Cleveland in August 2020. Seen as a depth acquisition in mid-August and cleared waivers, being outrighted to the Alternate Training Site. Was called up to the MLB roster late in the year and served as the club's starting second baseman down the stretch.

Summation: Career has been hampered by injuriies, hasn't been able to stick at the major league level. Profiles as emergency depth at this stage. However, iff healthy, still has the potential to develop into a valuable bench utility player and pinch hitter against lefties.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
