Hit 30 40 Linear bat path for high contact versus FBs; picks up spin, difficulty laying off and getting bat to it. Above-average approach, can be passive early count; more aggressive late count to avoid breakers. Has bat speed; lacks barrel-feel and projects for ground ball and weak contact with speed to get on base; solid walk rate.
