Hit 30 40 Swing-happy approach has caused him to struggle through first 300+ PAs at full-season level. Stings hard line drives when squared but shows limited present barrel-feel. Athleticism and batspeed present to project up.

Game Power 20 40 Slappy grounder-heavy contact profile at present offers virtually no HR power. Batspeed and large frame can grow into some over-fence power at maturity but won't ever be a huge offensive threat.

Raw Power 30 45 Flashes hard line drive contact in BP now; wild swing-path limits the consistency of his lift. Limited barrel-control or consistency to attack angle.

Run 60 60 Easy plus runner w/ strong, explosive strides. Gets to first step quickly, accelerates very well, pressures defense going H/1B.

Field 55 60 Athleticism shows up at SS, where actions and playmaking demand attention. Excellent body control for a larger player, easy first step both ways, soft hands w/ penchant for highlight-reel play. Above-avg glove potential at premium position.

Overall Summary
Physical athlete w/ standout speed and defensive tools at a premium center-diamond position. Bat hasn't progressed as hoped to date, but his glove gives him a carry tool to the big leagues. Betting on double-plus athleticism to take hold, even on a longer development curve.
