Hit 30 40 Light overall bat without much offensive impact. Won't be a factor at the plate at high levels, guaranteed bottom-third hitter who should be overly-exposed. If hit/on-base ability don't get to 40 he will be more of a AAA depth piece.

Game Power 30 40 Strength-based raw power allows him to run into mistake FBs every now and again.

Raw Power 45 45 Crude raw power w/o contact ability to fully bring to games; sells out and muscles up for occasional pullside lift.

Run 40 40 Below-avg runner overall, but moves well for size underway and digs a hard 90. Won't add baserunning value but won't hurt you there either.

Field 55 60 Standout defensive actions, could catch in the big leagues right now. Low, quiet targets w/ flexible lower-half and soft hands receiving. Excellent blocker w/ plus lateral agility. Occasionally gets lackadaisical and goes for the pick w/ glove instead of body, can correct. Projects as above-avg defender at premium position.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of defensive specialist/bench catching option, plus glove at premium position carries the profile. Won't hit enough for significant ML role, and if he can't turn any corner offensively from where he is now, will wind up a glove-only 4A depth option.
