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, feel to go to opposite field on pitches away. Approach is fringy: takes FB in and out of zone and recognizes CB, though chases SL badly out of the zone. Minor adjustments in swing will yield big returns in contact quality.

Game Power 40 55 Doesn't sell out; quiet lower half, ability to muscle balls to all-fields. Trades power for hit at present; projected improvement to swing timing, continued refinement of approach to find good counts will yield above-average power output at maturity.

Raw Power 55 60 Top-scale 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; made full lay out catch into gap. Good routes and closing speed; initial reads are still raw, should improve and balance out half-grade speed loss.

Overall Summary
Raw and athletic, player projects to occasional all-star in CF, contributing with all five tools. Extreme risk given rawness of approach, will fall short of ceiling if feel to hit doesn't improve. Athleticism, batspeed, barrel feel are here to tighten swing and unlock impact offensive production while playing CF.
