Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 50 Takes a big hack w/ plus bat speed, aggressive swinger; limited present approach or feel for the zone; limited pitch ID, more issues w/ soft stuff. Shows plus natural hand/eye which bails out swing-happy approach some and allows projection to hit tool; future-average bat w/ more developed approach and selectivity.

Field 40 55 Agile w/ range in RF but presently a below-average defender there due to poor routes/reads. Has the tools to be an above-average defender if he can develop more feel for corner outfield.

Overall Summary
See as an everyday regular in right field. 20-year-old who has a broad set of tools with plus raw power leading the way. Still young, but needs to work on approach and overall patience. High risk due to projection required on hit tool and defense.
