Hit 45 55 Level swing, contact-oriented approach, hitterish dude who has a knack for barreling balls. Shoots hard liners to all fields, goes w/ pitches and takes what pitchers give him. Low walk/low strikeout peripherals; mature feel for the zone; could hold his own at ML level now and projects as above-avg hitter.

Game Power 20 30 Slappy singles hitter who will never produce power. Projects as a gap slasher who legs out XBHs at maturity.

Raw Power 40 40 Lacks the strength or leverage in swing for raw power. Knows himself, not looking to drive the ball, focused on line drives and barrel control in BP.

Run 55 55 Above-avg runner w/ instincts to get the most out of his speed. Stolen base threat who makes things happen on the basepaths. Good situational awareness, reads pitchers well and knows when to go.

Field 50 50 Lacks the dynamic physical tools for a plus defensive CF, but polished routes and instincts make him capable there. Above-avg on a corner, able to move around the OF.

Throw 45 45 Below-avg arm that's short for RF in long stretches. Plays to fringe because of accuracy and willingness to hit cutoff.

Overall Summary
Profiles as a solid 4th outfielder. Pure hitter w/ .260-.275 hit tool and limited power, able to spot-start at all three OF spots. Don't see the power or true plus CF defense to fit as an everyday guy.
