Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Strong, wild cut w/ plus batspeed and limited barrel control. Frequent slices and mishits; front foot down late can make him tardy on hittable FBs; struggles on off-speed and often expands the zone. Apathetic at times, gives ABs away when he's struggling. Has tools to hit but raw approach holds him back.

Game Power 40 45 Has the raw for 15-20 HRs over full season, but don't know if hit tool allows it or if he'll get enough ABs.

Raw Power 50 55 Strength, batspeed, and leverage combine for advanced raw power that's already ML avg; projects up as he fills out. Good power potential for the infield.

Run 50 45 Avg runner underway, plays down H/1B and on the bases given very low motor that rarely digs a hard 90. Body type to lose a step w/ maturity.

Field 45 50 Fairly coordinated actions/soft hands for larger SS, though first step and range are fringy. Projects as a playable SS defender that's true avg at 3B, if not a tick better.

Throw 55 55 Above-avg arm w/ easy strength and line across the dirt. Allows him an extra step of range at SS, can play deeper but still finish throws.

Overall Summary
Physical, tooled up player w/ crude hit tool and questionable on-field makeup that limit the profile. Ceiling of low-end regular on the left side of the infield if approach and contact improve; likely profiles as offensive-minded role player/spot-starter who moves around the dirt.
