Scouting Report
: Excellent athlete with 5-tool potential. Has always been age-advanced at every stop of his career in the system. Plus bat speed with whip-like swing. Has tendency to get too long with it and wrap around the baseball. Did a lot of clean-up work quieting himself down and eliminating timing step in 2010. Solid-average power potential. Creates strong backspin when he squares pitches up and hits the ball hard when putting it in play. Below-average plate discipline and extremely impatient at the plate. Lacks a plan. Struggles with secondary offerings.  Fails to stay back against breaking balls.  Likes fastballs middle-in. Needs to expand plate coverage and work to opposite field with more frequency to project as solid-average hitter. Plus speed. Capable of stealing bases, but does not show an interest in bringing that aspect into his game. Former infielder.  Played shortstop early in career and moved to second base in 2010.  Showed to be a below-average defender, with poor reads and stiff actions.  Converted to left field in spring 2012.  Learning how to play the outfield. Reads ball off the bat well, but tends to drift to spots.  Plus arm. Rough and raw currently against upper minors competition.  Lacks concentration and focus.  Has not made many adjustments.  Ceiling of an average regular on a second division team.
