Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 45 Excellent FB hitter; chases spin, difficulty getting barrel to it. Can make hard contact late in count. Gets pull-heavy; rolls over, flashes feel to hit opposite. With feel and athleticism, projects to half grade improvement but good spin will continue to challenge him.

Field 55 55 Versatile defender: 55 at 2B; 50 in LF, 45 in CF. On dirt, average first step, but is light on feet, moves well around the position, excellent range on pop-ups. Solid hands. In OF, average reads and routes play with his speed.

Overall Summary
Bottom of lineup hitter with impact speed. Will hit enough and leg out extra bases to play everyday. Fits well at 2B and can play LF too, CF in pinch. Should move fast, development near complete; needs reps against spin to to reach future 2nd-div regular role.
