Scouting Report: Thick, wide build. Fully filled-out. Quiet hitting mechanics. Holds bat at chin level, drops down and into a slight uppercut swing with a subtle toe tap. Swing can get long. Aggressive approach, mediocre pitch recognition. Overall average hit tool with fringe-average power, most of which is created from his lower half. Average to slightly-above average speed. Super utility player on defense with a plus to plus-plus arm. Skilled enough defensively to play second, third, short, and every outfield position, but can lose focus leading to careless errors in the field. Was very age-advanced throughout his minors career with Oakland and St. Louis, where he was often considered to be among those organization’s top 20 prospects. Had a successful 2018 season in the majors but took a step back in 2019. Left Cardinals spring training without public explanation in early March 2019, got released, and signed a minor league deal with Boston. Floor of an up-and-down utility player with the ceiling of a long-tern, valuable major league super utility player.
