Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 45 55 Mature approach, comfortable in the box, makes pitchers work. All-fields hitter who can drive the ball without sacrificing contact. Will be ready to hit at ML level by late 2019, ingredients of above-avg hitter at peak.

Game Power 40 55 Frame and swing are the type that drive the gaps now w/ some pull loft but project to add significant power in time. Could hit 20+ home runs without selling out for power.

Raw Power 55 55 Strength gains have allowed him to grow into raw power, now showing above-avg flyball power to pull. Can open up on one and drive it when he wants to.

Run 50 50 Avg runner who will get the most out of his speed given good instincts and overall feel. Can take extra bases and occasionally swipe a bag.

Field 45 50 First step and range are more avg than plus for SS, but has quality fundamentals and makes all routine plays. Can work himself into an avg defender and stay at SS early in his career. Capable of moving to 2B or 3B if he needs to.

Throw 50 55 Arm looked above-avg early in the year, playing closer to avg in Fall League as he shows some fatigue after longest season as a pro. Enough for either left-side IF spot.

Overall Summary
Potential all-star upside in best years if he can stay at SS and the bat develops as hoped. Ceiling of above-avg hitter w/ 20+ HR power as he matures offensively. Instinctual player w/ plus makeup, good bet to be at least a solid-regular. One of baseball's best infield prospects.
