Long injury history: ankle/hamate (2016, 2017); sprained right UCL and flexor tendon, required TJ surgery (2018); placed on DL w/ elbow soreness (2019).

Hit 30 40 Loose, powerful cut w/ hands+hips in-sync. Wild swing, very limited bat control and pitch ID, overmatched by AA pitching and the lack of reps due to injury shows. Projects a grade better as he adjusts to better arms, though projects as a low average, high strikeout bat.

Game Power 45 55 All his value lies in ability to hit the ball out of the park. Enough raw to hit 20-25 HRs over a full season at maturity, even without fully bringing power into games.

Raw Power 70 70 Carry tool, calling-card raw power; puts on a show in BP w/ towering loft drives to all parts of the park. Rare power potential that will keep him on the prospect radar even if the hit tool takes a long time.

Run 40 40 XXL frame has thickened up considerably, running is becoming less a part of his game. Will need to keep body in check to prevent clogging the bases.

Field 40 50 Throwing issues and degree he has grown into a huge frame likely limit him to 1B. Showed enough athleticism before the injury to project as a solid defender there.

Throw 40 45 Question mark; showed a plus arm before UCL injury and surgery, but hasn't played the field in over a year. Might limit him to 1B only if elbow health and throwing remains a long-term issue.

Overall Summary
Amazing power potential makes him a prospect, but injuries have taken their toll. Likely will have to wind up a DH/1B type, putting extreme pressure on the bat. Hit tool has a long way to go; can take steps forward as he gets more pro reps, but will always be a feast-or-famine type. On the 40-Man Roster and has already used two options; likely on an accelerated timetable that gets him to the big leagues late in 2020.
