Defensively he's pretty ace. Great instincts and range. Knows where to be at the right time. His arm is weak, but it's improving.
Baserunning he isn't bad. Decent instincts and will steal pretty well.
With regards to his hitting ability. Zero power. He's really just a slap single hitter. IIRC, he had the lowest amount of XBH's in the MLB when played a certain amount of ABs. He doesn't really draw walks.
Essentially your hoping as a hitter he can develop into a guy who gets on base at a decent clip, offers great D and good base running.
And he wasn't leadoff in Minny.
