Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Small load and has above-average bat speed; very quick inside. Has some swing and miss, lacks much of an approach right now, very pull oriented and struggles with spin. Gets jumpy when down in count and will expand. Gets a little bit restricted and does not get the extension he should with his long arms. See some improvement as the approach matures, but ultimately below average hit tool.

Raw Power 40 45 Big top hand limits the carry on fly balls; has some raw power to pull and will get stronger, but ultimately see game power playing as gap/doubles-type production.

4.40, 4.44 HP-to-1B; athletic gait when underway, speed plays better on defense.
Field 40 55 Converted shortstop; plays deep in center field and has some trouble judging the ball off the bat; tentative first step; looked better going back than having to come in. Will improve, but ultimately doesn't have the run for center field; athleticism will play up to average at a corner spot

Throw 50 50 Short arm action, still throws like an infielder; throws tail to arm side; average arm strength with below-average accuracy.

Overall Summary
Athletic, raw left-handed hitter with some physical projection, chance to develop some gap power and play solid-average defense at a corner-outfield spot. Has some bat speed, but very pull oriented, loses the outer half and will roll over a lot. Lacks approach right now, but see some improvement as he matures. Quick inside, has a big top hand limiting the carry on fly-balls. Learning center field after moving off of shortstop; short arm action and has below-average accuracy. Moves well in the outfield, but ultimately the tools profile best in left field. Runs best underway and sees speed play better on defense, and 1st-to-3rd; can swipe a bag, but not going to be a big threat. Swing and miss is a concern, but benefit of the doubt here due to athletic ability and physical projection.
