Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 50 Short swing, plus hand/eye, puts the ball in play and won't whiff much. Singles hitter without much ability to drive the ball. Could be a true 45 hit tool at maturity, but speed plays up to avg as he'll leg out some hits.

Game Power 20 40 No power at present and won't hit many home runs. Could develop 8-12 HR power with significant projection on his ability to drive the ball. Chance he never hits for any power.

Field 55 55 Above-avg defensive actions, projects to remain at SS even as he fills out. Light on his feet, quick first step both ways, soft hands, quick transfer. Glove is calling card.

Throw 45 50 Fringy arm w/ limited carry at present, stretched on challenge plays from the deep hole. Young enough to grow into more arm-strength, will finish avg.

Overall Summary
Best-case ceiling of defensive-minded regular at SS, though there's extreme risk because of double-projection on his bat. Needs to get a lot stronger, chance he doesn't hit enough and winds up solid utility type.
