Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Level path w/ knack for finding the barrel. Swing-happy approach that doesn't whiff much but also doesn't draw walks; natural contact skill puts the ball in play often. Battles w/ 2-str, spoils good pitches to extend ABs. Youth shows at times right now, especially vs. spin; makings of playable hit tool w/ continued reps.

Game Power 30 45 Hard game contact without the lift for over-the-fence power. Remaining strength gains and bat-to-ball skill allow projection, likely finishes a doubles hitter w/ 12-15 HR upside. Don't see enough power for regular ABs on a corner.

Raw Power 45 50 Flashes building blocks of avg raw power in BP, occasional authoritative lift to pullside. Projects to avg as he fills out and learns to work under the ball more.

Run 45 40 Better underway, tick slower H/1B; body type that will likely slow a step as frame picks up muscle.

Field 45 50 Has outgrown center-diamond spot, learning 3B but shows tools to be avg there. Fair range and overall actions, has some natural playmaking ability.

Throw 50 50 Fair line and carry, avg overall arm. Quick transfer gets rid of the ball quickly. Time at SS gave him good footwork, able to throw on the run and finish tough plays at the hot corner.

Overall Summary
Former SS/2B who has outgrown the middle infield and is now mostly a 3B. Profiles as a tweener, can project on hit/power but don't see offensive carry tool for regular role on a corner. Projects as an offensive-minded bench player that moves between positions as needed.
