Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 40 Strength, bat speed and average barrel feel for hard contact in zone. Able to square up spin out over plate. Exposed down in count, chases spin from righties, late on good FBs, better vs. LHP. Swing length exposes away, rolls over. Should improve some w reps but likely a .235 type hitter when trying to get to power.

Game Power 40 50 Shows it on pitches up in zone, including spin. Good pitchers will take advantage of him away, difficulty getting to power down in count. Could hit 15-18 HRs full-time, fewer in bench role, will trade-off hit tool.

Field 50 50 Average reads, routes, and speed for OF corner. Makes all the plays he should but doesn't wow. Better ranging to line than gap in RF.

Overall Summary
Lacks hit tool to profile everyday in MLB OF corner. Better against LHPs, ceiling of bench bat who makes spot-starts on the short side of a platoon in both OF corners.
