Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 45 50 Contact hitter, line drive approach that sprays both fields; loose hands, inside/out path, won't swing and miss much. Playable hit tool at ML level right now, future avg as he adjusts to ML pitching.

Field 50 50 Average range for a big league SS, but polished and efficient actions/first step allow him to make routine plays. Soft hands, quick transfer, plays all around infield already.

Overall Summary
Lacks carry tool for everyday profile, and doesn't do one thing well enough to be a true 45/spot starter at ML level. Profiles as a well-rounded bench player who can move around the infield.
