Hit 30 50 Loose, whippy hands through the zone w/ length to bat path. Over-aggressive right now, falls behind in counts; limited ability to recognize spin; wants to drive the ball and takes a big swing prone to some whiffs. Approach/selectivity can improve w/ time, has tools to become avg hitter.

Game Power 40 50 Legitimate HR power, though might come at the expense of average and strikeouts. 15-18 HR upside over full season of PAs w/ ability to sting the gaps.

Raw Power 45 50 Surprising juice in the bat for smaller player. Has the batspeed to create power, shows up w/ loft to pullside. Projects avg as he gains strength and goes to RF w/ more power.

Run 50 50 Tick above-avg underway, but big swing limits how his speed plays up the line.

Field 55 55 Glove is the calling card; fluid and natural actions at shortstop; light on his feet and ranges well to both sides. Quick transfer, starts the 6-4-3 very well. Above-avg defensive SS.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of everyday shortstop w/ solid defensive tools and above-avg power for the position. Hit tool and approach must refine to get there; will be a solid role player/utility type if bat can't get him in the lineup regularly.
