Tall and lean with wiry strength; projectable frame should add at least 15 pounds in chest, shoulder, lower half.
Swing Mechanics
Similar from both RH and LH. Wide, slightly open stance with hands high and deep behind ear, raised elbow. Toe-tap into full-step stride, bat wrap, slight shoulder dip adds length to swing.

Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 50 Better from LH side; RH side hips leak, bat wrap is worse. Loose hands yield good barrel feel; at present will miss his pitch w swing length, late getting foot down. Still finding approach; showed signs of both anxiousness and passivity across look. Can pick up spin; shows youth at plate.

Game Power 40 50 FV- LH: 50; RH: 45. Projects to gain better feel for strikezone. Currently able to jump early count FB and turn on it from LH side. RH more 2B power.

Raw Power 45 50 FV- LH: 55; RH: 45. Plenty of bat speed from both sides; still growing into power. Better barrel-feel and swing mechanics, launch angle from LH.

Run 50 50 Fringy out of the box; better underway. Frame can carry more weight without losing too much speed.

Field 50 50 Works well laterally. Will move to 3B where footwork and hands both fit even with added mass. Solid infield actions.

Throw 50 55 Arm to fit at 3rd. From 2B, relaxes into side-arm; should jump half grade with strength and better technique from 3B

Overall Summary
Just-turned-18 y/o switch-hitter with physical projection left that will move him to 3B. Average tools with no plus carrying tool limits upside of profile, but solid future regular can slot into 6-spot in lineup.
