Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 50 Mature approach, takes pitches and hits w/ a plan. Fastball hitter, less bat-to-ball against off-speed, doesn't handle lefties as well. Strong uppercut w/ lift in mind, modern-era hitter that draws walks and puts a charge into the ball at the expense of strikeouts.

Run 55 55 Avg up the line, better underway. Plus baserunning instincts allow him to get the most out of his speed and steal bases, even though he's not a true burner.

Field 50 50 Doesn't have the straightline speed to be a slam dunk CF at the big league level, but plus routes and reads make him an average defender there. Plays deep to compensate, goes back on the ball better than he closes in on bloops.

Overall Summary
Well-rounded set of average tools fit an everyday profile if he can remain in CF. Lacks a carry tool for a full regular's profile on a corner, will be a 4th OF if he moves down the defensive spectrum. Floor is more attractive than ceiling, but a safe bet to contribute at ML level.
