Hit 30 40 Fairly light overall bat; beaten by velo up in the zone; loopy path that gets long covering outer-third; exploitable holes when extended. Hit tool projects up a tick given contact orientation and ability to leg out base hits.

Overall Summary
Speed, glove in CF, and defensive versatility can get him to the big leagues, but don’t see enough bat for full-time 4th OF duty for a contender. Profiles as solid upper-org player w/ toolset for numerous cups of coffee.
