Hit 20 40 Badly overmatched offensively, still growing into XXL frame and lacks balance+contact on off-speed; highest-risk hit tool w/ long way to go before offensive impact.

Game Power 20 45 Power doesn’t show up in games; enough raw power potential to dream on what could be if he can ever develop into a decent hit/on-base producer.

Raw Power 45 60 Ball explodes off his bat to pullside, easy flyball power in the tank already. Natural leverage from XXL frame gives huge power potential. Chance to get to plus as he fills out.

Run 45 45 Runs very well for his size, though better underway and in the outfield than going up the line. Will go 1st-to-3rd or score from 2nd better than he'll actually swipe bases.

Field 50 50 Rangy in RF, covers a ton of ground w/ incredibly long, fluid strides. Will avoid 1B despite his size. Plays all around the OF now, though fits best on corners long term.

Throw 55 55 Above-avg arm w/ fluid stroke that produces easy carry. Strong low lines back to the dirt. Good RF fit.

Overall Summary
Freak athlete w/ huge raw power potential and excellent mobility for his XXL frame. Wildcard prospect that dominates certain aspects of the game but might never hit enough to be more than a novelty. Follow grade for now w/ chance to move up if he takes steps forward at the plate.
