Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 45 Hitterish feel at the plate, quick/handsy stroke, all-fields contact; works counts, IDs off-speed, has sense of the strike zone. Slight arm-bar casts the barrel, could give issue vs. velo up/in. Signs of future playable hit tool.

Game Power 30 40 Swing path and approach aren't geared for loft power. Better when he is focused on line drives, more swing/miss and back-side collapse when he expands.

Run 45 45 Below-average up the line; playable runner underway; stolen bases not huge part of game, but has base-running instincts and won't clog.

Field 40 45 Saw only at 2B, where he's a presently below-average defender; thick lower half limits range and first step; hard handed at times, especially moving to 3/4 hole. Has the instincts and makeup to become serviceable glove.

Throw 45 45 Average arm that can handle 2B or 3B; lack of power at the plate fits better at 2B for extended periods.

Overall Summary
Lacks carry tool for regular ML role. Feel to hit could make him an offensive-minded infielder at AAA who gets cups of coffee off the bench. Runs the risk of being too vanilla and falling short altogether.
