I think you could say he is at least average defensively. He has a .992 fielding percentage this year, and has committed only 3 errors in Louisville this year. Most important, he has thrown out 26 of 75 baserunners this year. I can't speak to his ability to handle a pitching staff; maybe someone else can.
