Poor average, low OBP, Some pop, a lot of strikeouts, and good defense. Who am I describing?

I just think Espinosa is one of those players that proves that WAR is a flawed measurement of a player. Espinosa is a bad hitter who has some power. He's a very good defender at second and an above average to good defender at shortstop, from what little we saw last  season.
Ian Desmond circa a year ago.  It's a similar conversation.  DE strikes out a bit more, but plays better defense, but they're similar stat lines.
