Hit 30 45 Above-average bat speed; stays balanced, has some feel for the zone. Muscular stroke, lots of hand movement while the ball is in the air; tends to open up early. Jumps a bit and has some hip travel. Athletic enough to make some adjustments to make more consistent contact.

Raw Power 40 45 Strong kid, but majority of power is to the pull field; fringe-average raw power; fly balls die; plays more as potential gap pop as the approach matures.

Overall Summary
High-energy OF with above-average bat speed and ability to impact the game on the bases and on defense. Aggressive approach at the plate, has some swing and miss, but sees pitches and has some on-base ability. Struggles vs. LHP will ultimately force him into a platoon role, but I like the high-energy style of play and athleticism. Compares to Shane Victorino (OF, Phillies, Dodgers, Red Sox, Angels) at the major league level.
