Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Big cut, lots of swing-and-miss. Pull-heavy approach, fastball hitter vulnerable against spin in and out of zone, doesn't shorten swing two-strikes. Shows ability to take FBs out of zone, can track a change-up and keep hands back. Projects for modest improvement w approach, including with two strikes, and lands as three true outcomes type

Game Power 45 55 MLB pitchers will expose the hit tool and make it difficult to get to his raw. Would run into 20+ HRs in full-time role, but shouldn't get that many PAs. Still can get to 15-18 HR power in part-time role.

Raw Power 70 70 Double plus strength and ability to muscle it out to all fields with loft in stroke. Has bat speed to catch up to FBs and crushes them when making contact.

Run 40 40 Neither an asset nor a clear deficiency. Solid instincts on bases, not a clogger.

Field 45 50 Playable at 3B both present and future; fringy footwork and first step with solid hands, actions are too stiff to be average at 3B. Will play to average at 1B eventually with strides expected in scooping and comfort at position.

Throw 60 60 Easy arm, doesn't have to load up to show plus; accurate and on a line from behind bag at 3B.

Overall Summary
Profiles as bench power bat able to play both infield corners. Hit tool will be exposed by quality arms, especially spin, but ability to get to power gives him moderate risk ceiling of offensive contributor off the bench.
