Hit 40 55 Loose, whippy swing w/ hitterish look. Quick to the ball w/ projectable batspeed. Athletic stroke, balanced finish, advanced bat-to-ball skill for age/level. Chance to finish above-avg.

Game Power 30 50 Will play more as doubles power w/ occasional HR loft early in his career until he starts to fill out. See potential for 15-18 HR at maturity.

Raw Power 40 50 Hard contact both ways in BP, projectable lines off the bat. Lots of strength left to gain, will grow into more power.

Field 45 50 Former SS transitioning to new infield spots. Actions looked good at 2B, think he'll be a capable defender there or at the hot corner if he outgrows the middle infield.

Throw 50 55 Fluid arm-stroke w/ easy carry, finished the 6-4-3 DP well at the keystone. Arm will be above-avg at 2B, avg at 3B depending on where he winds up defensively.

Overall Summary
Instinctive, well-rounded player w/ exciting feel to hit and a ton of remaining projection. Really buy the bat, see a future above-avg hitter w/ enough batspeed to hit for power despite not having a slugger's frame. Ceiling of offensive-minded everyday infielder at 2B or 3B.
