His defensive prowess has improved quite a bit since he first came into the system. I will readily admit that he isn't great at stopping balls in the dirt and gives up too many passed balls, but his arm is top notch. He is consistently above 40% at throwing runners out.

I do not agree with your assessment of his swing, it is not "flat".
