Scouting Report: Utility player capable of playing all outfield positions, second base, third base, and shortstop. Smooth swing path. Below-average hit tool. Below-average power. Solid-average speed. Came up through the minors as a shortstop. Decent glove, average arm. Historically showed flashes of working as a valuable super utility player, but struggled mightily in 2018 and early 2019. Released by the Royals in June 2019. Impressed with Pawtucket over the summer after signing that June, including increased power. Potential low-cost super utility option who has the ability to go on a hot streak offensively.

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