Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 50 Plus bat speed with a smooth swing and load with his hands, struggles with pitch recognition and got overly patient at times to make up for it, needs a more aggressive approach, can work all fields with swing, quality strength on hit balls, struggled against LHP in viewing, struggle to see more than mild improvement v. LHP. see as a future avg hitter.

Game Power 40 55 Don't see to full potential given struggles with pitch recognition, but plays against both sides.

Raw Power 60 60 Plus raw power, hit balls have impressive carry and drive, comes more so from bat speed and doesn't have to rely on natural strength.

Field 40 50 Below-avg fielder in CF at present, see moving to RF, struggled with initial reads off the bat and routes, often came in on balls then had to go back, still new to the OF after playing 3B initially, has speed and arm strength to profile in RF, can improve with quality athleticism and additional development.

Overall Summary
See as an everyday regular in RF. 20 year old former 1st rounder with an impressive array of tools and athleticism, high risk given that he is still new to the OF and am projecting a position change.
