Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Average bat speed; hitch swing that adds length and slows down his hands; aggressive approach, free-swinger who doesn't ID off-speed; lots of swing/miss in game. Hit tool projects a grade, but still doesn't profile better than a below-average hitter.

Game Power 30 40 Will tap into a grade more game power as hit tool improves, but won't have the contact to fully bring raw power into games.

Field 40 50 Has spent most of his career in CF, where he's a fringy defender; plays a better corner outfield, and is able to spot in at all three in a pinch; will improve reads/routes in corner-outfield spot w/ more time there.

Overall Summary
Profiles as athletic extra outfielder w/ defensive versatility and raw power. Required projection on approach and hit tool adds risk to profile.
