Similar from both sides; LH has more loft, RH linear. Open, shoulder-width setup with bent knees. Moderate stride to close off; short load, direct to ball with above-average bat speed, average extension. Swing lacks weight transfer and leg engagement, especially from right side.

Hit 45 55 Stronger swing from leftside side with a little more leg engagement; able to find barrel on different pitch types w above-average bat speed from left. Let's ball travel; harder time catching up with less fluid RH swing. Has plus batter's eye; puts himself in good counts, will take walks.

Game Power 40 45 RH: 30/LH: 40. Will get to 10-15 HRs all from LH side; ability to elevate pitches up in the zone; lacks strength for profile corner outfield power production. RH swing doesn't project for power.

Raw Power 45 50 LH: 50/RH 40. LH bat path has some loft; above-average bat speed with enough strength to clear fence pullside. RH bat path is linear, yields gap-to-gap liners.

Overall Summary
Tweener profile; lacks power for everyday corner role. Bat is weak from RH side and player projects to high-end bench role, good platoon option versus RH pitchers who sees 300-400 ABs from either corner outfield spot where hitting and on-base ability will be an asset.
