Field 40 50 Moves all over the infield (SS/2B/3B), looks more comfortable up the middle. Athletic actions, but will likely outgrow shortstop. Projects as an avg defender elsewhere in the infield w/ ability to slot in at SS for short stretches.

Throw 50 55 Above-avg arm w/ strong carry and low lines through the target. Sloppy footwork and limited accuracy right now from the deep hole. Projects above-avg as he makes the adjustment.

Overall Summary
Physical, athletic infielder w/ strength in the frame and batspeed from both sides. Like the tools, but all projection. Undisciplined approach and proximity from ML level add risk to profile.
