Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 50 Plus bat speed with strong wrists, patient approach, works counts and recognizes pitches well, hands stiffen up at the plate and he had a tendency to spin off his front foot, uphill swing plane, sells out for power at times, better hit left-handed, see as a future-average hitter with additional reps.

Game Power 40 50 Can improve to average with further development, will play more so from the left side than the right, but will play a grade below raw due to lack of bat-to-ball skills, stiff hands, and approach.

Field 40 50 Below-average fielder at present, struggled with reading balls off the bat, questionable instincts at times and misjudged balls, looked more comfortable in RF, his probable future position, future-average fielder with additional development.

Overall Summary
Second-division starting OF. Will play this season at 19 years old, high risk given that strides need to be made with approach and outfield defense to reach ceiling, will struggle vs. LHP, but has everyday value given switch-hitting ability with power.
