Run 55 50 4.15 H/1B; surprisingly quick up the line given thick lower-half; strong, choppy stride that accelerates well now but likely loses a step; not a huge SB threat but has instincts to swipe a few bags.

Field 45 55 Instincts show up on defense, though already a large frame at SS and likely moves to 3B. Rigid at times w/ occasional issue reading hops; soft hands and charging ability could make him above-avg at hot corner.

Overall Summary
Upside of solid everyday 3B w/ hit-driven profile and above-avg glove at the hot corner; still very young w/ projection required across the board; patience and power will need to develop to reach ceiling.
