Hit 30 40 Swing has more strength than looseness of flexibility. Limited ability to adjust the barrel to a well-placed spot or to spoil a two-strike pitch. Heavy pass through the zone w/ pull power orientation. Question if he'll hit enough to bring power into play on a corner.

Game Power 30 45 Has strength and raw power for near average HR power outputs over a full season, though low batting average and strikeouts might cut into him getting that many ABs.

Raw Power 55 55 Easy above-avg raw power w/ consistent ability to loft the ball to pullside w/ authority. BP stands out among a group of A-Ball players.

Run 40 40 Below-avg runner that doesn't contribute much on the bases. Not a part of his game.

Field 40 40 Moves between corner OF spots now but only profiles in LF long-term. Heavy stride w/ iffy range and playmaking there, might move to 1B at higher levels.

Throw 45 45 Didn't see arm tested much in a short defensive look. Fair line and carry, type that focuses on hitting the cutoff, less pressure on arm if he winds up a true LF/1B-only type.

Overall Summary
Age and raw power make him a follow, but has a ways to go improving in-game hitting ability such that he's a legitimate prospect. Likely a BP masher who doesn't tap into power enough in games to make impact at the ML level as a bat-only player.
