Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 45 Grooved swing w/ inside length that sells out for power. Lots of holes, whiffs through pitches to inner-third, will always come w/ strikeouts. Very patient approach, knows how to work counts to get a FB he can drive. Projects as low-.200s hitter, though ability to draw walks makes on-base ability playable in regular role given power.

Game Power 45 60 Enough power to be a 25+ HR threat despite low-grade hit tool and strikeouts.

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 50 50 XL frame is surprisingly agile at 3B. Feet work, hands are soft; think he stays at 3B long term.

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.
