Hit 30 45 Stays back on the ball, all fields approach, finds barrel on fastballs middle-in. Barrel drag will expose player to good velocity and on outer third. Solid approach and feel for spin; doesn't expand.

Game Power 40 50 Launch angle and bat speed will allow player tap pullside HR power in games. More of a gap hitter to opposite field. Has enough barrel feel to power up on fastballs and mistakes for HR totals in teens.

Overall Summary
Shows ability to barrel up pitches in heart of the plate at present. Swing length will ultimately expose hitter against quality fastballs located away and create swing and miss, but the bat speed, approach and feel to hit will provide fringy AVG and OBP with some power and defensive chops to slot as a regular player at 3B.
