Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Hits w/ a plan, controls the zone, works the count and can take a walk. Contact-oriented swing, over-rotational upper-half at times that adds inside length, showed give against same-side pitching. Gets streaky at times and is slumping badly right now. Will need to hit more to reach ceiling, though bat will always be light for everyday role.

Overall Summary
Glove and speed give the upside of a defensive-minded bench outfielder. Will fall short of that if he doesn't hit more.
