Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Level path w/ improving ability to use both fields. Slap hitter who is looking to use his speed; gives away at-bats at times and shows apathy at the plate. Some projection left but has work to do to develop a playable hit tool at ML level.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of defensive-minded fourth outfielder who can slide in at all three spots. Will be relegated to more of a late-innings specialist role for his speed and glove if he doesn't hit enough.
