Semien is a steady defender with sure hands and some arm strength, though he may lack the first-step quickness to stay at shortstop. He's an average runner. He hit well last year and in the Northwoods League last summer, but scouts have questions about his bat. He didn't do anything to quell doubters this year, hitting .260/.357/.380.
