Hit 40 45 Quick, athletic stroke w/ well-synced hands+hips. Contact-oriented approach, looking to put ball in play, spreads out and shortens up behind in the count. Worse vs. LHP, slight hip leak pulls off down/away spots, struggled w/ same-side breaking stuff.

Game Power 40 40 Strength gains have given a bit of pop and better ability to drive gaps. Not a HR threat but won’t get the bat blown out of his hands.

Raw Power 40 40 Lacks size or swing lift for much raw, not huge part of his game.

Field 55 55 Speed translates to CF, moves quickly heading back on balls and runs direct routes. Covers good ground in the grass, ultimately see having versatility between a few positions in bench role.

Throw 40 40 Below-avg arm that’s even on the fringes of a CF fit. Has to focus on hitting cutoff and making routine throws. Better in LF if he’s stopgap starting in LF in the big leagues.

Overall Summary
Speed, contact skill, and defensive versatility give him bench/utility upside. Will wind up as a 4A depth/callup piece if he doesn't hit enough to carve out a full-time ML role.
