Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Low-scale hit tool that doesn't project further. Grooved swing that doesn't adjust the barrel well; consistent swing-and-miss on pitches in the zone. Big swing that trades contact for power.

Game Power 45 55 Enough raw power to run into 18-22 HRs over a full season, even with a hit tool that limits how much his power comes into games.

Raw Power 70 70 Towering double-plus fly ball power; raw power is the calling card; high loft and arc off the barrel to LF and CF. Puts it over the batter's eye in CF.

Run 45 45 Below-avg up the line, but moves well enough that he runs closer to average underway. Won't clog bases and can move 2B/Home and 1B/3B.

Field 45 50 XL frame will need to keep body in check and work to stay at 3B, but he has the tools to do it. Hands and feet work, he's a playable 3B defender now, can be AVG w/ continued pro reps/instruction.

Throw 60 60 Former college closer, arm-strength shows up from the hot corner; plus arm w/ velocity and low line across the infield. Arm strength bails out his first step, allows him to play a step back.

Overall Summary
Projects as a part-time power bat, a platoon starter who can play corner defensive spots. Likely to always come with .200-.230 averages and lots of strikeouts; raw power bails out the hit tool even if he never makes enough contact to fully unlock it.
