Physical Description
80 grade athlete; strong, fast and filled out.
Swing Mechanics
Even, shoulder-width set-up, bent knees, hands off ear. Massive, slow leg raise starts pre-pitch, collapsed back leg, loads up adding length and swing angle down on ball to topspin, pulls off, excellent extension. Bat speed, loose hands, athleticism for smooth swing, lacks timing and fluidity.

Hit 30 40 Out of sync in 2018s look, have seen better. Huge leg kick to keep weight back made him late on FBs. Showed quieter lower half in July but was out on front foot. Approach is below-average, expands, fooled easily, pull-heavy. Will k above 30 percent as MLBer, but make good contact and elevate when he does. Low average and obp; projects to improve a grade with more adjustment to quiet swing.

Game Power 50 55 Will consistently hit 20-25 homers despite issues w hit tool. Has strength, bat speed, leverage to pound mistakes, muscle out balls he doesn't square. Projection based on modest improvements w swing timing-- staying back but getting foot down to make more and better contact.

Raw Power 70 70 Elite bat speed, loose hands, strength, huge swing, leverage all generate huge pop off. Pull-heavy, has shown it to dead center in games.

Field 60 60 Does it with speed more than reads and routes; gets to gaps and shallow balls very well. Not as smooth tracking back but makes plays with legs; sure-handed. Plus in CF; given offensive profile could slot in RF with 70 glove.

Overall Summary
Elite athlete who has physical tools to be regular all-star but lacks the hit tool to reach ceiling. Profiles as dynamic everyday regular with power/defense/baserunning combo that comes with low batting average and on-base. Streaky hitter who will run hot and cold at the plate; CF defense and baserunning will add consistent value.
