Hit 40 55 Quiet set up; stays short to the ball; developed a slight uphill plane in 2016; above-average bat speed. Very easy actions, not a lot of movement. Covers the zone, comfortable using the whole field. Can handle velo in all quadrants. Sees pitches, looks to work count, but does have some swing and miss.

Run 50 50 HP-to-1B 4.19; not going 100% very often, but has an athletic gait; gets a little stiff down the line, better underway. Might be a little more in there, but yet to see it. Plays even on defense.

Field 50 55 Above-average range; plays deep, but goes back easy. Good first step with direct routes. Has some awareness. Actions are very smooth, easy; can fool you on the effort level.

Throw 40 50 Showed average during the season; looked hurt in the Fall League. Stiff, mechanical arm action with no carry. Looks like he's protecting the shoulder or elbow, but no word of an injury. Was much better in Cal League looks; consistently got body into good throwing position.

Overall Summary
Athletic, everyday corner outfielder with and advanced approach at the plate and extra-base hit potential. Stays short to the ball and has feel for the barrel; consistent hard contacts and can drive the ball to all fields. Was young for the level and was not overmatched; got home run happy in the small Cal League parks and started trying to get more lift. Above-average defender who takes good routes; can handle center field for stretches, but average range has him better suited for a corner-outfield spot. Heads up base runner; can steal a base, but does not get great jumps; is best underway; can score from 1st base on a double. Compares to Matt Lawton (OF, 1995-2006) at the major league level.
