Physical Description
Sturdy frame, more mass than listed weight. Carries weight in lower half and may thicken in middle; has strength but otherwise lacks athleticism.
Swing Mechanics
LH: Open set-up, feet shoulder-width extended, bent knees, hands by ear. Moderate leg raise with full stride, quiet short load, loose hands, excellent weight transfer, varied bat path from lofted early count to line drive w 2-strikes; swing is fluid and compact. RH: Similar to LH w bigger leg raise, more loft, less compact to tap more power.

Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 50 60 Pull hitter, excellent barrel-feel with enough bat speed to turn on good velo. Feel to hit; plus approach- aggressive early in count but barrels what he selects, spits on good strikes, doesn't expand; effective two-strike hitter with strong hand-eye skills. Could hit at ML level now, ingredients of future .275 type bat.

Game Power 40 50 Will get to all of raw and more with ability to barrel from both sides of plate. Will land in hitters counts; looks to elevate fastballs ahead in count.

Raw Power 45 45 50 RH/45 LH; has barrel-feel and bat speed to impact baseball; picks spots to loft but compact swing more built for line drives than bombs; shows only pullside.

Run 40 40 Not clogger, not an asset either. Better underway on the bases; will pull his away into double-plays from LH side.

Field 45 45 Stiff actions, limited footwork, solid hands and instincts. Good enough to stick with bat carrying profile; could see work in LF eventually, can play 2B in emergency only.

Throw 50 50 Passable arm at 3B; stretched from behind bag. Has quick release; will step into 55 arm stength and lose accuracy.

Overall Summary
Bat-first profile will play with plus hit-tool. Not a masher, but hitting ability will get him to 15-20 HR. Top of lineup type bat with defensive liabilities at 3B, could potentially fit in LF. To reach ceiling will need to adjust approach to better pitching and player shows feel to do so.
