Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 50 Has plus bat speed and solid barrel-feel to be an average MLB hitter. Swing has length and gets longer when trying to tap power. Approach is inconsistent but projects to improve with reps; can lay off pitches early count; expands down in the count; has athleticism and stroke to make adjustments.

Game Power 30 45 Swing path won't maximize all his raw power; plus bat speed with enough strength to run into 12-15 HRs; average barrel-feel, will drive gaps and leg out extra base hits.

Overall Summary
Well-rounded toolset with defensive ability to profile in CF. Offensive toolset will be pushed as a regular, but his ability to work counts, leg out base hits, and provide plus value on the bases is enough to profile as everyday CF. Extreme risk given potential bat doesn't progress and lands as defensive/speed option off bench.
