Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 45 Loose swing w/ plus batspeed, lets it fly and whistles barrel through the zone; good natural leverage and balance in base. Pull-heavy hitter who struggles vs. LHP; likely shift candidate that might always carry heavy platoon splits. Hit tool projects to 45 when shielded from tough same-side matchups.

Game Power 45 55 Has the raw for 20-25 HRs over a full season, but think overall hitting ability and struggles vs. LHP will limit his output. Still has enough juice to produce avg game power even in a part-time role.

Raw Power 60 70 Ball explodes off the bat to both fields. Easy leverage and loft, plus raw power right now that could finish a grade better as he fills out upper-half.

Run 40 30 Below-avg runner up the line, long legs take a few steps to get going. Moves a tick better underway, still likely a 30-grade runner at maturity.

Field 50 50 1B-only defensive profile, but looks solid there. Coordinated actions, soft hands; starts the DP well and consistently picked the ball. Big target to throw to across the infield.

Overall Summary
Special power potential gives the best-case ceiling of a low-end regular w/ more walks and improvement against LHP. Realistic upside of a righty-mashing platoon bat or everyday corner slugger that carries rough same-side splits.
