Scouting Report
: Son of former major leaguer Ivan De Jesus. Makes slightly above average contact with minimal power and slightly below-average plate discipline. Essentially a gap hitter, able to spray liners due to solid bat control. Average speed, but won't steal a lot of bases.  Above-average defensive player with a soft glove, excellent instincts, and average range. Primarily a middle infielder, De Jesus can also fill in at third base or corner outfield in a pinch. Projects as a  utility player at the major league level.
