Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 45 Not a natural hitter, but draws walks and knows how to get a FB he can drive; stiff, off-balance stroke struggles to barrel off-speed or go the other way; beaten by well-located spin or velocity up in the zone. Future low-average hitter who draws walks and produces power.

Game Power 40 45 Has the raw for 15-20 HRs over a full season, but don't think he will get enough ABs in his likely role. Power-focused approach will always run into some homers.

Raw Power 50 50 Avg ML raw power; drives fly balls to pullside; doesn't have the same juice to the big part of the field in BP.

Field 40 45 Big body in the middle infield without desired quickness or lateral agility; stiff actions at 2B w/ slow transfer starting 4-6-3 DP. Size and actions fit better at 3B but still has work to do to be a playable defensive infielder.

Throw 40 45 Below-avg arm at 2B given slow transfer and issues throwing on the run. Playable at 3B with his feet set, but has similar issues finishing throws on the charge.

Overall Summary
Bat-first infielder lacking a true position, but could hit his way into a big league role. Profiles as a bench player who moves between 3B, 2B, and might get time at 1B/LF to add versatility.
