Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 60 Hitterish at the plate w/ explosive hands and strong contact. Reads pitches well, lays off spin and hits w/ a plan. Early-count swinger w/ most contact to pullside; gets himself into bad counts at times right now, but can improve that w/ experience. Batspeed, approach, and pitch ID are that of a future above-avg hitter w/ continued development.

Game Power 30 50 Hasn't fully unlocked plus raw power in games, but projects to be a 15-20 HR type bat at maturity as he learns to loft the ball more regularly.

Field 50 55 Capable CF right now who projects above-avg w/ more reps and development. Accurate routes w/ quick first step; struggles w/ low liners hit right at him at times, but will clean that up.

Overall Summary
There's some risk to the profile given projection on improvements to approach and game power, but the ceiling is high. Has the tools to become an impactful above-avg CF, a potential all-star caliber producer at peak.
