  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Sturdy, athletic frame. No remaning projection. Needs to pay attention to not adding weight in order to keep his mobility and range.

Hit: Fringe-average hit tool. Switch hitter works well from both sides. Does not impact the ball enough. Passable approach and plate discipline. Bottom-of-the-order bat.

Power: Below-average power. Flashed fringey in-game power in 2017.

Run: Above-average speed. Good instincts.

Field: Plus defender at second base, average at shortstop and third base. Solid utility player defensively. Solid glove, average range, inconstent footwork and quickness.

Arm: Above-average arm.
  Career Notes: Success story for the White Sox international scouting team. Moved quickly through the system. Spent several seasons as an everyday regular for the major league club. Took home the AL Gold Glove Award at second base in 2019.

Summation: Solid utility insurance at the Triple-A level. Versatile infielder who plays excellent defense. Questionable whether his bat comes back around enough to provide a significant major league impact.

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