Hit 40 50 Short path w/ slight uppercut, has a swing that makes contact and fully gets to raw power. Hits with a plan and controls the zone, works counts, showed a feel for the zone. Has the tools to be a .250-.260 hitter.

Game Power 40 50 Ceiling of 15-20 HR power over a full season. Ability to drive the ball to both fields can rack up doubles and keep defenses out of the shift.

Run 40 40 Below-avg runner that can take extra bases underway. Might be a clogger later in career and only go station to station. Never will be a SB threat.

Field 45 50 Fringy 3B defender w/ a chance to work himself into average. Range and first step are questionable for the position, but shows instincts and reads hops well. Reaching ceiling hinges on ability to stick at 3B.

Overall Summary
Has the tools to be an everyday player if he stays at 3B and grows into more power. Risk to profile, bat is likely too light for impactful role at ML level if he winds up a 1B-only type.
