Hit 30 30 Short to the ball; can generate some bathead speed. Starts open and never really closes up; pull-heavy approach with a big top hand. Barrel quickly in and out of zone. Loses outer half of plate.

Raw Power 20 30 Wirey strong frame, but lacks carry on fly-balls. Keeps the ball on the ground; chance to develop some gap power; not an extra-base producer.

Run 45 45 4.25, 4.29 HP-to-1B; Athletic gait, but not as explosive as the body lets on. Much better underway; has enough to score from 1st on a double. Not going to be a base stealer.

Field 50 50 Moves well into the corner in right field; good body control and gets into solid throwing position. Ranges into the gaps well; not a true fifth outfielder, but could be fringe-average in center field

Overall Summary
Athletic, left-handed hitter that has a short quick stroke and has some utility value in the outfield. Does not provide much power, gap or HR variety. May get a bit stronger, but barrel does not stay in the zone for very long, and contact rate will drop at Double-A or above. Shows some plate discipline; not over aggressive, but will jump on a fastball middle in. Pull approach and has very little juice from center field to left field; will roll over a lot trying to hook everything. Like the athleticism and he has some bat speed, but slow to make adjustments. Plays average in the outfield; fringe-average runner who has his speed play better on defense. Lacks the run tool to be a fifth outfielder and not enough pop for a fourth outfielder.
