Scout Report by: @CaseOfSiddFinch +5
Location: Boston, MA, US
Xander has potential to be the next great offensive shortstop in the mold of a slightly stronger Derek Jeter. He was rushed and yanked around a bit last year, but should settle in with less pressure on him this year. He has a hose for an arm and is showing improved lateral quickness and footwork since last year. Make-up and plate discipline are two of his greatest strengths. Despite sounding like an old scout from Moneyball, he "looks and acts the part of a star." At worst he will be an above average offensive player with a strong OB and hit tool. He is a slightly below average defender, but could move to average or above average with experience.
