Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 50 Has the bat speed to let ball travel with barrel feel for hard contact against different pitch types. Loose, line drive swing at best, inconsistent and gets uphill, gets pull heavy and rolls over. Approach flashes: takes FB in and out of zone and recognizes CB, chases harder spin. Minor adjustments in swing will yield big returns in contact quality.

Game Power 40 60 Doesn't have to sell out; quiet lower half, future ability to muscle balls out to CF with bat speed and barrel feel. Trades power for hit; projected improvement to swing timing, continued refinement of approach to find good counts will yield plus power output at maturity.

Raw Power 55 60 Plus bat speed w/ loose hands, strong wrists, leverage. Projects to add w physical maturity; doesn't sell out to tap it in games, but plus power in body.

Run 60 55 Long strides, better underway; not great first step but plus closing speed in CF. With physical growth, back up half grade.

Field 55 55 Centerfielder; goes and gets it; makes plays in the gaps. Good routes and closing speed; initial reads are still raw, should improve and balance out half-grade speed loss.

Overall Summary
Raw and extremely athletic player w/ high ceiling. Could be a top regular and occasional all-star in the best-case scenario, able to contribute with all five tools. Rawness of approach and questions about how much he'll hit create extreme risk. Will bring defensive value in CF; has the athleticism, batspeed, and hand-looseness to make swing adjustments and unlock impact offensive production.
