Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Lacks rhythm at the plate, not a natural hitter. Stiff, rigid trigger and swing that struggles to get comfortable. Inside length w/ limited barrel control or ability to go the other way. Don't see offensive impact for full-time ML role despite athleticism and bevy of other tools.

Game Power 40 40 Has size and raw for occasional power on mistake FBs. Doesn't project to be a real power threat higher up the ladder.

Raw Power 45 50 Flashes of avg raw power, shows up mostly to pullside in BP. Mechanical and timing issues limit consistency of lift or ability to drive the big part of the field. Lots of hard hit lasers w/o loft right now.

Run 60 60 Athleticism shows up on the bases, runs very well for size. Plus wheels; 4.10-4.15 H/1B times; stolen base threat w/ long strides underway. Best attribute, shows up in numerous facets of his game.

Field 55 55 Long strides cover lots of ground in CF. Excellent closing speed allows him to play deep and charge in on balls. Above-avg defensive outfielder.

Overall Summary
Plus athlete w/ limited baseball feel, still building reps; contributions defensively and on the bases give him a chance at a cup-of-coffee bench role. Don't see offensive impact for full-time ML ceiling. Follow grade.
