Hit 40 50 Shows a willingness to take pitches and can work into counts. Will whiff more hitting LH but also carry more offensive impact. Bat needs some more seasoning but should be ready to hit at ML level by late 2019.

Overall Summary
Speed and defense could help at ML level right now, but will benefit from more high-minors time to develop as a switch hitter. Well-rounded toolset gives good chance to be everyday CF: solid contact ability w/ chance to develop power at a premium position.
