Hit 40 55 Stays balanced; has some uphill plane, but shows above-average feel for the barrel and will shorten up with two strikes. Advanced approach for age; controls the zone, sees pitches. Will get long at times, but has above-average bat speed and is very quick inside when not over-swinging.

Raw Power 30 45 Profiles as more doubles/gap power; ability to drive both gaps. Majority of home run power is to the pull side. Creates leverage, lift. See it playing as more doubles power

Run 50 50 Quick to full speed, but not a burner; best underway. Not a base-stealer, but will be able to pick his spots. Can score from first base on a double.

Field 50 55 Shows instincts; good jumps and reads into gaps. Aggressive, not tentative going back on balls. Not a burner, but a very good athlete and the average run plays well due to efficient routes. Just average range in center field; future move to right field expected.

MiLB Stats
Overall Summary
Athletic, corner outfielder with some feel for the barrel who sees pitches and has some extra-base hit potential. Loose, athletic swing and has a track record of getting on base and making adjustments as he moves up levels. Hangs in vs. LHP, consistent good at-bats. More doubles pop, but has some juice and will get fringe-average game power. Advanced approach to the game for age; heads up; aggressive and has some instincts on the bases. Has the ability to handle center field, but lacks the ideal plus range and likely ends up on a corner. Compares to Josh Reddick (OF, Dodgers) at the major league level.
