Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Good barrel control, above-average bat speed; level path w/o much strength behind it, though projects into firmer contact w/ strength gains; ingredients of playable major-league hit tool w/ physical projection.

Game Power 20 40 Projecting to play at full grade given above-average bat speed, bat control and improvement in approach, but won't ever be much of a home-run threat.

Field 45 55 Smooth overall actions at SS, projects to stay at the position and profiles as future above-average defender; soft hands, quick first step, good range; natural defender, though will get showy and make youthful mistakes right now.

Throw 60 60 Plus arm, weapon on the left side, throws have great carry and were delivered on a line, has plenty of arm for the backhand plays into the 5/6 hole.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of everyday shortstop if he can develop more w/ the bat. Very polished defender, defensive/baserunning contributions give a high floor as a bench player, even if the stick isn't enough for everyday ABs. Risk to profile given amount of offensive projection required to reach ceiling.
