Hit 40 60 Hitterish w/ excellent natural bat-to-ball skill; fluid, balanced, athletic stroke that takes what is given and uses both fields. Makes adjustments very quickly for a teenager. Ingredients of future plus hit tool.

Game Power 30 45 Lacks the swing lift or approach for much present game power. Can project given youth and feel for quality contact, but unlikely to be huge HR threat.

Field 45 50 Polished, coordinated defender at SS; makes routine plays but might ultimately lack lateral range for the position; likely to outgrow position as already-thick frame continues to get larger.

Throw 55 55 Average raw arm plays up a half grade given internal clock and ability to throw from different angles on the run. Enough arm for the left side of the infield, even if he moves off SS.

Overall Summary
Excellent instincts and feel to hit for his age, poised competitor that has competed admirably against older competition all year. Ceiling of solid everyday regular, offensive-minded infielder that might wind up at 2B or 3B long term.
