Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Lacked natural rhythm or timing at the plate, stiff swing w/ frequent swing+miss both in and outside the zone. Shows give on LH breaking stuff, struggles to barrel off-speed. Power and patience approach; draws walks and hunts FBs; projects as a low average bat w/ occasional pop and some on-base ability.

Game Power 30 40 Gets to some power in A-Ball by way of lift-focused approach, but limited hit tool holds power from coming fully into games. Could be a 8-12 HR type over full season if he makes more contact.

Raw Power 50 50 Avg raw power that shows up to pull; hooked path doesn't drive the ball as well to the big part of the field.

Run 70 70 Athleticism shows up on the bases, easy double-plus runner w/ consistent 4.0-4.05 H/1B times. Accelerates w/ effortless glide; stolen base threat if he's able to get on base enough. Late-inning pinch runner potential.

Field 60 60 Makes a difference defensively, plays a plus CF w/ easy glide and good closing speed. Impressive range and ability to finish plays. Athletic enough for all three outfield spots as defensive replacement late in games.

Throw 55 55 Above-avg arm w/ strength back to infield. Aired out a few throws w/ high rainbow he could have let go on a hop.

Overall Summary
Excellent athlete, plus speed and defense give upside of bench player/late game sub. Very talented but underperforming tools, might benefit from fresh start. Will stall in upper-minors without offensive adjustment.
