Corner outfielder with an advanced approach at the plate and potential run-producing, power bat. Very balanced swing with feel for the barrel; consistently hard contact and ability to drive the ball to all fields. Has a feel for the strike zone; above-average aptitude for the game at a young age; shown ability to adjust to the increase in level so far. Present plus raw power and has room to continue to get stronger. Good athlete with body control and should get to above average defense at a corner spot. Compares to Jermaine Dye (OF, 1996-2009) at the major league level.
