Hit 40 50 Quick swing, two-handed finish; leaks front hip at times and pulls off, takes a more level path when he stays through pitches away. Worse swings against off-speed, though slappy approach doesn't swing and miss much.

Raw Power 40 45 Limited raw power, most hard contact to pullside. Projects up a half-grade if he takes out the unorthodox crouch in his setup and gets more leverage in the swing.

Field 45 50 Fast enough to outrun circular routes in CF right now; has the physical tools to stay at the position as reads and lines to the ball improve.

Throw 50 50 Average arm w/ fair line and carry. No help/no hurt type that isn't a liability in CF, but not a true weapon either.
