Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Power and patience profile w/ limited ability to adjust the barrel. Holes in swing, can't get to inner-third or FBs above the hands. Dead pull hitter that struggles to use the big part of the field, shows power-over-hit mentality. Patient w/ sense of the zone, draws lots of walks. True 40 hit tool w/ chance to play at 45 given on-base ability.

Game Power 40 40 Mistake hitter who will get to some pull power on FBs over the plate, but don't see hitting ability to bring raw into game action at higher levels.

Raw Power 50 50 Big league raw w/ fly ball power to all parts of the park. Good natural backspin and lift in BP.

Run 45 40 Fair runner underway w/ occasional stolen base ability in A-Ball. Not a huge part of game, likely loses a step as large+muscular frame ages.

Field 40 45 Former 2B lacked actions for middle infield, now moves between 3B/1B. Has work to do at the hot corner; stiff hands w/ issue finishing plays coming in or to backhand.

Throw 50 50 Fair line and carry that looked enough for left side of the infield; didn't see challenged much this viewing.

Overall Summary
Physical frame, power potential, and ability to draw walks intrigue and give him a chance at the big leagues. Can't play up the middle and don't think he gets to all his power, so likely lacks carry tool for full-time ML role. Ceiling of upper-level depth piece/4A callup type; could get cups of coffee as an offensive-minded bench bat that moves between corner spots.
