Hit 30 45 Level plane, above-average hand speed. Will get very long; out and around balls; lacks approach and situational awareness right now, over-swinging often. Big top hand, overspin line drives to pull side.

Overall Summary
Athletic right-handed hitter with above-average bat speed, a chance to hit for some power and play slightly above-average defense at a corner-outfield spot. Has smooth actions and some present strength, see some ingredients there, but raw and lacks a consistent approach at the plate. Ability to recognize spin, but over aggressive and will expand zone; not much adjustment with two strikes. Gets long trying to jerk anything on inner half and up in zone; best stroke is to right center, more controlled, level plane that creates some carry. Playing center and left field now, good instincts and athleticism play up; will likely be able to handle the center field position in a pinch at upper levels, but see the body filling out and being better suited for a corner spot in the big leagues. Compares to Marcell Ozuna at MLB level.
