He's always had an elite glove. He is a fantastic defender and a true SS. The bat has lagged behind until he showed some improvement at AA this year. Most scouts still aren't sold on him as a regular, but his floor is likely a utility IF. Kevin Goldstein is in love with him though. The AFL isn't the best place to judge improvement unfortunately, especially from a numbers perspective. I will remain cautiously optimistic for now.
