Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Will always come w/ strikeouts, but approach and ability to draw walks project to bail out on-base ability to some degree. Projecting up as he's kept away from tough LH matchups. Struggles badly against same-side breaking stuff; bat is more strong than quick through zone, struggles to adjust barrel.

Game Power 40 50 Don't see hit tool to bring raw power fully into games, especially against LHP. Still has the strength for 15-18 HRs in shielded or part-time role on the strong side of a platoon.

Run 40 40 Fairly mobile for his size but still a below-avg runner. Won't contribute value on the bases.

Field 40 45 Plays RF at present, don't think he has the range or closing speed for position. Projects as LF/1B type with corner versatility.

Overall Summary
Physical slugger w/ LH power that carries the profile. Don't see hit tool for full-time role on a corner, mostly due to struggles w/ same-side pitching. Projects as righty-mashing platoon bat who moves between LF and 1B.
