Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 45 FB hitter w/ pull-oriented swing, looking to lift the ball. Takes pitches and draws walks but struggles to barrel up off-speed, especially from same-side pitching. Has the physical tools to develop playable hit tool but will have to make adjustments.

Game Power 40 50 Power doesn't come into games consistently, but has the raw for 15-18 HRs if he can get to it. Good power for a CF, would be more pedestrian if he's on a corner.

Run 60 60 4.15, 4.18 times HP-to-1B. Long swing makes him more of a 50/55 runner up the line, but has plus speed when underway. Threat on basepaths; projects to rack up a good number of SBs.

Field 45 50 Easy defensive glide w/ smooth, long strides; ranges back on the ball well; routes still developing on challenge plays hit right to him and/or coming in on the ball. Future AVG defender in CF; would be plus if he moves to a corner.

Throw 50 55 Will flash above-average carry and velocity on throws, but a pitcher-like 3/4's throwing motion causes present issues w/ accuracy and tail on the ball. With an adjustment to his arm slot, throwing can play above-average, fits in all three OF spots.
