Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Raw hit tool, look of a guy still figuring approach out. Long swing, big cuts early in the count, present swing-and-miss in profile. Shows flashes of being able to barrel the ball consistently and lay off good pitches; projects to increase hit tool as he shortens his swing and picks his spots to take a rip more judiciously.

Game Power 40 50 15-to-20 home runs at maturity; projects for continued development of hit tool; ability to get into hitters counts. Can clear pull-side alley; shows deep liners to CF

Overall Summary
Raw offensive approach that will take patience. Flashes ability to hit and take pitches that allow projection to hitting ability; made adjustment as series progressed and shortened his swing a bit. Long-range prospect w/ risk to profile given projection needed on the bat, but has the tools to be an everyday CF.
