Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Swing works for hard line drive contact and drives to gaps when he stays closed. Over-aggressive approach; looks young at plate, anxious. Feel for opposite field. Steep load may need adjustment to get bathead out quicker; has physical tools, loose hands and bat-speed to adjust

Overall Summary
Will take time, but has ceiling of glove-first everyday shortstop at ML level. If bat falls short of being able to handle regular playing time, defensive ability gives high floor as bench player.
