Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Hits from an even, slightly crouched stance, plus bat speed, aggressive approach, isn't working counts and tends to go after the first few pitches of an AB, can get behind and be forced to go after pitcher's best stuff, tends to bail out on swings, lacks consistent bat control, at his best he stayed back on balls and works the opposite way, should be approach going forward, see the hit tool playing better at fringe-average with improvements in approach and additional reps.

Game Power 30 40 Won't play to full potential given lack of discerning eye, approach, and current hit tool struggles.

Field 45 50 See as an average defender in CF, could be abv-avg in LF, takes consistent routes and reads, covers ground well, gets to ball fairly quick as well.

Overall Summary
Has a major league floor of a 4th/5th OF with defensive skills and speed, needs to improve approach at the plate to reach offensive ceiling, see as a reserve OF who could play everyday for a lesser team.
