Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 50 Finds the barrel on inner 2/3s of plate; plate coverage issues to outer 1/3. Bat speed to let ball travel; gets pull heavy for spells but shows some feel to adjust. Inconsistent approach- will expand on spin away, swing at pitcher's strikes, fall behind; when locked in, takes more pitches and shortens up w two-strikes and should improve this ability w maturity.

Game Power 40 50 Looks to do damage early count; line drive-extended bat path to elevate; could sell out for more but would detract from hit/on-base ability and will land at 15-18 HRs with plenty of legged out extra base hits.

Run 60 60 Long strides, better underway with plenty of closing speed in CF; slight delay out of box due to follow through of swing. Shows some youthful aggression on bases.

Overall Summary
Athletic, five-tool talent who profiles in CF. With projected consistency of approach, could slot into top of lineup with on-base, speed, and power to set table will providing above-average defensive value. Some risk he doesn't stabilize approach but already has reached bench-role floor.
