Hit 20 40 Lots of moving parts; large leg lift and busy hands; hands sink and hips open and over-rotate; often leaks well out front and cuts extension; deep turn, can struggle to get barrel out front, frequently inside of balls with pull approach; poor barrel control; plus bat speed, explosive loose hands with lift;

Raw Power 30 45 Premium bat speed with noticeable lift; conducive for opposite field actualization; plus raw in BP, shows some present actualization in-game situation; limited bat-to-ball skills place limitation on future power; potential for 15-plus in a peak year

Overall Summary
Tejeda possesses exceptional bat speed and explosiveness at the plate, though generated in a capacity that severely limits his ability to make consistent contact. He is able to generate plus raw power from the left side; limited bat-to-ball utility and barrel control alongside natural swing-first approach places a limitation on the full potential of the bat speed; decent present athlete but shows mostly in a straight-line capacity, moderate utility on basepaths with ceiling of a utility glove in best case scenario; realistic Role 35 with fringy hit tool and average power potential.
