well for starters he plays SS. He was the Padres 1st round pick last year, and at the time was considered the player "Most ready for the Bigs" right now... But the Padres chose to give him some in development. They plan on having him as there everyday SS next season so he will get plenty of AB's over the month to see if he is ready. He has speed and pop and should develop into a nice 5 tool player.
And he gets to play in an excellent lineup. He should bat near the bottom as to not give him any pressure to perform. All signs point to success.
