Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 45 Swing is more strong than quick, heavy pass through the zone w/ length and limited batspeed. Punishes mistakes but has trouble turning around velocity or barreling off-speed. Patient approach, hits w/ a plan, works ABs and projects to take walks. Likely a true 40 hit tool that plays to 45 due to on-base ability.

Game Power 40 45 Don't think he'll make enough contact to ever fully unlock plus raw power. Still strong enough to run into 12-15 HRs over a full season. Hunts FBs, yanks pullside w/ power in games.

Raw Power 60 60 Strength, size, and swing leverage combine for easy plus raw power. Towering fly ball drives w/ especially impressive tanks to pullside. Puts it out to all parts of the park in BP.

Run 30 20 Bottom of the scale runner who will likely slow up even more as catching slows him down. Difficulty taking extra bases or scoring from 2B. Below-avg baserunning value, station-to-station type w/ clogger potential.

Field 45 50 Polished defender w/ good flexibility and blocking ability for his size. Overall actions still developing, occasionally clunky and harder-handed. Projects avg w/ continued reps.

Throw 50 50 Solid line and carry to 2B, at least avg, didn't see tested much in quick look. Only saw at catcher for one of four games.

Overall Summary
Low-average, high-power producer who draws walks and has solid defensive tools at a valuable position. Ceiling of low-end regular or solid role player/spot-starter for a contending club. Polished, well-rounded game gives a high floor; likely finishes no worse than a bench catching option.
