Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 20 40 Dead-hands hitter, needs to loosen up and get front foot down earlier to get around on pitches better. Drags the barrel through a long path, inside hole w/ consistent whiffs vs. velocity and spin. Long-range hit tool that requires serious dreaming and will take time.

Game Power 20 40 Strength+batspeed to dream on some deep-down future power, but can't get to it in games right now because of struggles making contact at current level.

Raw Power 40 45 Hard contact in BP without lift for fence-clearing power. Projects up as he learns to add more leverage in his swing.

Run 50 50 Average straightline speed, tick better underway. Not a burner but can do small things on the bases; occasional swiped bag, able to move 1st-to-3rd.

Overall Summary
Athletic, muscular frame w/ crude batspeed and a chance to stay at SS. Didn't get a great look at what he can do because he's currently so overmatched by a full-season assignment to start 2019. More a collection of raw tools at this point than a true prospect, high-variance player who could fall short. Follow grade.
