Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Low-grade present hit tool that projects below-average; bat won't be competitive above the high-minors level. Slow swing w/ stiff path that exposes inner third of plate. Beaten by good velocity away from his sweet spot; fastball hitter w/ consistent swing-and-miss vs. soft stuff. Pull hitter.

Field 30 45 Struggled at 3B this look, likely a 1B-only above A-Ball. Hard hands, limited range, didn't show a feel for finishing challenge plays. Won't ever add value w/ glove; will be an adequate first baseman.
