Hit 45 55 Small load, stays short to the ball; level stroke and keeps the barrel in the zone. Uses the whole field; consistent hard contact to all fields; squares up velo in all quadrants. On-base ability, feel for the strike zone; tends to hunt for fastball.

Run 60 60 HP-to-1B: 4.18, 4.22, 4.25; quick to full speed, athletic gait; is a base-stealing threat, but not great instincts, jumps.

Field 50 55 Plays deep, comfortable going into the gaps, but more tentative on balls directly in front or over his head. Can handle center field for stretches, but his routes and reads have him better suited for a corner-outfield spot

MiLB Stats
Overall Summary
Athletic corner outfielder with offensive catalyst-type qualities - gets on base, has some extra-base damage ability and is an above-average defender with some arm strength. Aggressive in the zone and tends to hunt the fastball, but knows the zone and doesn't expand. Has extra base pop and will hit his share of doubles. Aggressive runner, looks to take the extra base. Has shown ability to make adjustments to each level as he advances. Plus run, but range plays down in center field due to reads and routes; chance to be above average on the corner. Not much more physical projection, but should continue to get stronger. Compares to Albert Almora Jr. (OF, Cubs) at the major league level.
