Hit 30 40 Spray hitter w/ slappy contact from both sides. Aggressive hacks w/ active leg-kick trigger to start the swing. Overmatched at times as a young switch-hitter in full-season ball; has the batspeed and contact frequency to project on hit tool development.

Overall Summary
Speedy switch-hitter w/ light bat and defensive versatility that could get him to the big leagues in cup of coffee role. Ceiling of upper-level depth/4A callup piece; will stall in high minors if bat carries no impact.
