Hit 30 55 Teenager overmatched at full-season level, but shows underlying tools to hit and has plenty of time. Quick bat from both sides of the plate, hands+hips well-synced through contact, sprays line drives w/ flashes of advanced barrel control and zone awareness. Requires dreaming but has ingredients of above-avg hit tool.

Game Power 30 40 Gap slasher without size or lift for huge power down the road. Can project some given youth, contact quality, and batspeed.

Field 50 55 Coordinated, smooth defense actions jump out; soft hands, quick transfer, natural feel to finish plays. Lapses w/ routine play at times show his youth, but will correct in time.

Overall Summary
Struggling this year as a teenager in full-season ball, but he’s young for the level and the tools show through. Ceiling of big league shortstop w/ above-avg hit, run, and defensive tools. Likely shows more at the plate repeating A-Ball a year older in 2020.
