ESPNBoston: Keep an eye on Betts (1.14.13)

Scouting Report: Athletic infielder who had committed to play at Tennessee prior to signing. Excelled in four sports in high school. Plus-to-better speed. Ability to impact a game with his legs. Compact, level swing. Fluid load. Quick hands, strong wrists. Plus hit tool. Solid overall approach for someone his age, works counts, and isnít overly aggressive. Consistently makes solid contact to all fields.  Plus strike zone judgment. Potential to produce high levels of contact as he continues to develop. Fringe-average power potential. Small-framed, but strong for his size. Solid-average arm. Fluid and smooth actions defensively. Soft hands. Former shortstop transitioned to second base as a professional. Tends to stay back on balls rather than charge. Excellent instincts and profiles as a plus defender at second base. Played some center field in high school, began seeing some game action there in May 2014.
