Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Lengthy overall path, heavy arm-bar that limits ability to adjust the barrel. FB hitter that crushes mistakes, less contact on off-speed. Will need to control the zone and learn his strengths, too swing-happy at present and puts everything to pullside. Likely always a low-average, high-strikeout hitter w/ feast-or-famine slugging approach.

Game Power 45 55 Easy game power any time he squares one up. Still hitting for power in the pitcher-friendly FSL even w/ crude hit tool. 25+ HR upside if he makes enough contact to get in a big league lineup regularly.

Raw Power 60 70 Huge raw power w/ towering fly ball drives in BP, puts it out w/ authoritative loft to all parts of the park. Could finish double-plus considering size and youth.

Run 30 30 Well below-avg runner that will need to stay in shape to avoid being a full blown clogger and station-to-station type.

Field 30 40 Moves between LF/RF now, definitely won't wind up anywhere but LF in the outfield and likely can't even play there. Too slow closing balls in the gap, liability that causes extra bases. Will need to work to play anywhere but 1B.

Throw 60 55 Plus arm w/ strong lines and booming carry, will play down and be wasted a bit as a 1B/LF given lack of mobility.

Overall Summary
One-dimensional slugger, likely 1B/DH type w/ all pressure on the bat. Boom-or-bust profile; no value if he doesn't make enough contact, but double-plus raw gives 25-30 HR upside w/ any ability to tap into it in games. Extreme risk prospect w/ power potential to stay on the radar.
