Field 40 50 Good athlete at 1B, soft hands, makes the routine plays, moves around the bag and can make the stretch, doesn't cover much ground, lacks present range, will have to stay near the bag when using defensive shifts. Can be an average 1B-only defender at ML level w/ more reps.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of everyday first baseman with plus offensive output; potential to hit for average and power. Risk to profile as a bat-only player with no defensive value; lots of pressure on the bat to carry the profile.
