Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Currently a low-grade hitter not ready for upper-level arms; lengthy path w/ arm bar that exposes inner-third; limited pitch ID, consistently swung through RH breaking stuff; front hip leak pull off down+away spot; dead FB hitter that struggles w/ secondary. Athletic enough to adjust some, but doesn’t project for much hit/on-base.

Game Power 30 40 Has raw strength to drive mistakes, though doesn’t fit the bill of a big HR threat. Plays more to gaps.

Run 55 60 Athletic frame w/ acceleration and big SB totals; chance plus straight-line speed plays down at present given instincts; jumps and reads need work, but ultimately fast enough to outrun mistakes.

Field 45 50 Moves between CF and RF, though DNS in CF this look; speed for all three OF spots w/ iffy present defensive instincts; passive coming in on balls and rarely comes up firing w/ runners looking to advance.

Throw 45 45 Fringy/playable arm in warmups, DNS challenged much during game action; likely better LF fit over prolonged sample at ML level.

Overall Summary
Athleticism, speed, and defensive versatility can get him to the big leagues, though lacks a carry tool/overall offensive for full-time bench role. Upper-org piece that gets cups of coffee in prime years as 4A player.
