Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Aggressive hack w/ too much swing+miss; has the strength and batspeed to hit but lacks bat-to-ball ability; struggles in same-side matchups, much better vs. LHP. Swings through FBs in the zone, bars off inner-third of plate and gets beat under his hands.

Game Power 30 40 Lacks hit tool to fully bring raw power to games. Strong enough to run into mistake FBs over a full season.

Raw Power 50 50 Big league raw w/ size, strength, and batspeed for power.

Run 50 45 Surprisingly fast for his size and build, runs 4.2-4.3 up the line and true avg underway. Aggressive on the bases, able to steal more in A-Ball than at higher levels. Likely slows a step as large frame ages.

Field 50 50 Versatile defender who plays a solid LF/RF and gets occasional time in CF. Has a chance to stick on a bench if he can handle CF in a pinch, likely fits best on the corners.

Overall Summary
Physical athlete w/ gamer mentality and production vs. LHP that could get him to the big leagues in 4A/callup role. Tough to place him full-time on an ML bench as a RHH corner player. Follow grade.
