Field 50 50 Mobile in OF corners, though tracks back better than he comes in on balls; football mentality shows up in fearlessness going hard into the track, not afraid to lay out.

Throw 45 45 Fringe/playable arm that’s a better LF fit for long stretches at ML level but can make routine throws from both corner spots.

Overall Summary
Former football player gaining baseball reps at pro level. Athleticism, speed, and raw power can get him to the big leagues, though lacks hit/on-base ability for full-time ML role on a corner; ceiling of upper-org depth piece w/ 4A callup value.
