Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 20 40 Big cut, ability to punish fastballs to pullside, creates lots of present swing/miss issues, sacrifices contact for power. Barrels pitches in zone but will expand against soft stuff away, especially w/ 2-strikes. Has batspeed and barrel feel to project on hit tool but must improve selectivity.

Game Power 30 50 Pullside; barrel-feel and bat speed to pound mistakes. Will need to improve approach and selectivity to get to power against quality pitching

Overall Summary
Ceiling of high-power, low-average 2nd division regular in RF if he can make just enough contact to profile. Raw hit tool and projection required to approach add extreme risk.
