Hit 40 50 In the process of changing his approach to get to more power. Struggling against upper-level LHPs in first taste of AA, might always carry platoon splits and be shielded from tough same-side matchups. Patient hitter w/ sense of the zone; ability to draw walks could make him an avg on-base producer.

Game Power 40 50 Has the size and raw power for 15-18 HRs over a full season, though will need to add lift to his swing to tap into it. Grounder-heavy contact profile stands in the way of current power.

Run 30 30 Well-below-average runner. Thick lower half limits first step and acceleration, even underway. Potential to clog.

Field 40 45 1B-only defender. Big target to throw to who can pick the ball, but lateral mobility is limited. Makeup and intangibles to work himself into a playable defender.

Throw 40 40 Below-average arm strength that's accurate. Completes basic throws from 1B but isn't a weapon as a cut-off man from the outfield.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of low-end regular or righty-mashing platoon/role player at 1B. Struggling in his first taste of AA as he tries to adjust his approach and get to more power on the fly. Risk to profile given all the pressure on the bat; must hit and hit for power to have sustained ML value.
