Hit 40 50 Advanced hit tool for A-Ball; above-average bat speed; all-fields contact w/ more authority to pull side. Quiet approach, calm in the box, patient hitter who takes pitches and works counts. Good hand/eye, puts the barrel on the ball, tough to strike out. Projects as average tool.

Game Power 30 40 Approach and flat swing-path aren't geared to work up on the ball and generate loft. Power will play more to gaps; projects as a doubles hitter. 8-12 HR type at maturity.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of a second-division regular in CF; instinctive player w/ bat-first profile, well-rounded toolset provides value defensively and on the bases. Moderate risk to everyday profile given the lack of power. High floor as 4th outfielder, will be good bench player if bat isn't enough for full-time ML role.
