Hit 30 40 In a deep slump and is in his own head right now; struggles to recognize off-speed, much less comfortable passes at spin. Room to improve offense but will never be known for his bat.

Raw Power 45 45 Surprising juice in the bat for smaller player. Shows he can lift the ball w/ authority to pullside.

Run 55 55 Above-avg runner, but not a true burner. Will swipe some bags and can go two bases to score.

Overall Summary
Lacks the bat for a true part-time starter/utility role, but the glove and infield versatility could still get him to the big leagues as a bench player. Has really struggled at the plate this year and could wind up a 4A/depth piece if he can't get any better offensively.
