Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 30 Lots of present swing-and-miss and weak popouts. Pull-heavy approach that doesn't use the other field well. Fastball hitter who is vulnerable against off-speed stuff, frequently chases and expands zone. Some improvement expected in approach, passive at present, but MLB pitchers will expose with spin.

Game Power 40 45 Uppercut is geared to put a lot of balls in the air; more power than hit in profile; projects to fringe-average game power as he adjusts approach to find opportunities to barrel.
