Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 45 55 Repeatable, compact stroke, stays on balls and extends through the zone. Makes hard contact. Looks to stay up the middle to opposite field, but has the quickness to turn on velo inside. Advanced approach, sees pitches and gets on base; has feel for the strike zone.

Raw Power 30 40 Line-drive plane, can shoot the gaps, but home run pop is limited. Will pop a couple to pull field, but plays mostly as gap power.

Run 60 60 4.22 HP-to-1B, but could be more in there. Quick to full speed, takes good turns and looks to pressure the defense. Not a big basestealer, but is a threat to run. More than enough to score from first base on a double.

Field 50 55 Makes the routine plays; hands will stiffen up when on the move. Athletic coming in on rollers. Average lateral range. Catches what he can get to. Athleticism to move around the diamond.

Throw 45 45 Short arm action, 3/4 arm slot. Did not see him stretch it out. Best suited for second base, but enough to get the job done at third.

MiLB Stats
Overall Summary
Athletic, utility infielder who grinds out at-bats, plays average defense, and has an advanced feel for the game. Makes consistent contact and has a compact stroke with bat control that plays vs. advanced pitching. Does not have loud, splashy tools, but competes and gets the most out of his ability. Don't project him to develop much more power, but will get stronger and can see him having consistent gap pop in the future. Game clock and arm accuracy play up the fringe-average arm strength; athleticism will allow him to move around defensively; won't kill you at shortstop. Like the energy - ingredients there to be a role player at the major league level - see him getting enough at-bats to be considered a "regular." Over-achiever, baseball player. Compares to Aaron Miles (STL, COL, LAD, CHC, CWS) at the major league level.
