Forth Worth, TX
9th round, 2009 by PIT
Acquired from Pittsburgh with Joel Hanrahan for
Jerry Sands, and
Ivan De Jesus (Dec. 2012)
Signed with Milwaukee (Feb. 2020)
Good contact hitter with the ability to hit the gaps. Lacks home run pop.
Average to above-average plate discipline. Slightly below-average speed.
Has played shortstop and second base professionally. Decent glove.
Fringe-average arm, quickness, and range make him better suited for second
base, although defense at shortstop is passable enough enough to be a true
utility man. Has also spent time at all 3 outfield positions, third base,
and first base. Hits better when he gets regular at-bats. Not
an ideal pinch hitter. Slightly better career splits against left-handed
Holt makes an impression (4.8.13)
