From what I've heard, he's more four tool. He's the kind of guy that stat-guys as well as scouts are high on. The only reservation scouts have is that he won't develop power, hence the "four-tool" distinction.

Scroll down for Danks. John Sickels is a fan of him as well, as he believes he'll make the show, regardless of a power surge. Sickels is a pretty damn good judge of talent.
