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.

Raw Power 40 50 Minimal present lift, but shows hard carry off the bat both ways in a young/projectable frame. Will grow into avg raw.

Field 50 50 Coordinated actions at SS, soft hands w/ ability to make the routine play reliably; finishes charge plays and starts the 6-4-3 well w/ polished footwork. Defensive gait and range might outgrow the position given thicker lower half.

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
Ceiling of above-avg shortstop w/ plus hit tool and on-base ability for the position. Projects closer to an average everyday player if he moves off the position. 3+ years from ML ready, but excellent instincts and overall feel stand out and tie together a well-rounded toolset.
