Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Looks overmatched at Double-A right now, especially against soft stuff. Sacrifices significant contact for power; grooved swing that doesn't adjust bat well within the strike zone. Swings and misses often and always will, though has feel for the zone and draws walks, which projects to add to his on-base ability as he adjusts to advanced pitching.

Game Power 45 55 Strong enough to drive the ball out to all parts of the ballpark. Power shows up much more against righties. Will still come into the equation even though he won't fully get to raw power in games.

Raw Power 70 70 Towering double-plus fly ball power from pole-to-pole. Puts on a show in BP that would stand out in a big league batting practice right now.

Run 30 30 Well below-average runner; thick lower half limits acceleration and ability to move first-to-third; potential to be a clogger.

Field 50 50 Overall defensive value is limited as he is a 1B-only, but he's solid there. Soft hands, good footwork, can throw from different angles and start 3-6-3 double play.

Overall Summary
See as a regular against RHP's filling the strong side of a platoon. Lacks hitting ability to fully unlock 70-grade raw power, but it's enough he can still run into 18-to-24 home runs at his peak, especially as he's shielded from same-side matchups.
