Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Raw hit tool that needs reps, shaking off rust after missing all of 2018. Front foot gets down late+causes bat to drag, but correctable. Lots of swing/miss within the zone, showed give against RH breaking stuff. Has tools to hit at ML level, just needs refinement.

Game Power 30 45 At least 12-15 HR type w/ plenty of doubles. Has the strength for more, but will need to make real gains in the contact department to unlock it.

Raw Power 45 50 Strength, batspeed here to generate power; doesn't swing up on the ball much, but it's in the tank; above-avg power potential for middle infielder.

Run 55 55 Above-avg runner, accelerates quickly up the line w/ strong, athletic strides. Speed for double-digit SBs.

Field 40 50 Lackadaisical fundamentals on routine play, staying upright and stabbing at balls w/ one hand. Has the requisite athleticism, range, and body control for the position, just needs to clean up mechanics.

Throw 55 60 Easy above-avg arm w/ strong carry across the infield, especially impressive given recent shoulder surgery. Hints arm could grow to a true plus as he builds strength back.

Overall Summary
Excellent athlete w/ loads of physical gifts. Has the raw tools of a power-hitting SS, though contact ability could always stand in the way of true offensive impact. More realistically finishes as a low-end regular or toolsy role player w/ some pop.
