Physical Description
Thick, soft body, weight in lower half; body has backed up further since 2017 look. Much heavier than listed weight.
Swing Mechanics
LH: Slightly open, feet-shoulder width, inconsistent hand position between ear and chest level. Leg lift, deep load, big stride, shoulder dip to elevate, opens early, significant hip drift, arms-y swing with big follow through, very long swing. RH: Similar; feet closed; better timing via less hip drift, long swing

Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 20 30 Smoother, better timed swing from RH. Swing is grooved for FBs middle-middle; length of swing, opening early creates vulnerability to outer half. Gets foot down late, especially from LH side, trouble with anything soft. Should improve approach w development; has bat speed.

Game Power 30 40 Lacks the hit tool for raw power to fully translate to game situations. As he develops more contact ability w/ age and development, chance for a grade more HR power. Projects as 8-12 HR type in bench role.

Raw Power 45 50 RH: 50; LH: 45. More in the body; has bat speed. Swing does not maximize the strength in his frame.

Overall Summary
Has added bad weight and is too heavy with no signs of slimming down. Defensive limitations will push him to 1B where the bat isn't enough for regular role at ML level. Batspeed and raw power give him some upside, but the ceiling is more realistically that of a bench bat.
