Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 45 High-contact, line drive swing, able to go gap-to-gap when finding fastballs. Unable to lay off or barrel high-quality spin, especially from LHs. Fringy approach; hunts FBs early count, doesn't expand on them but falls behind in counts vs arms w deeper repertoire. Some improvement on spin expected, plays up to 45 with limited ABs vs. LHPs

Game Power 30 40 Doesn't get to his raw bc of linear bat path. Can turn on a fastball and yank pullside; has doubles power and will get to some XBHs with his legs. Anticipate he'll add a little more loft to get to handful of bombs.

Overall Summary
Player fits 25th man role as extra outfielder, able to play all three positions with quality arm, speed off the bench. Lacks hit/power combo to profile as regular and must still improve ability to hit spin to profile as MLBer off bench.
