Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 50 Strong, aggressive cut w/ plus batspeed, good balance in base despite a high-torque swing; natural leverage and pull power in hand-path; gets over-aggressive at soft stuff early in counts, but is starting to show ability to hit w/ a plan. Might always be a streaky hitter, but has tools to hit .250-.260.

Field 40 45 Improving defender at 3B who has a better chance to stay there; hands and feet look more polished after putting in work since last year. Will be most valuable if he stays at 3B. Chance he moves to LF/1B down the road.

Overall Summary
Bat-first player w/ the offensive upside to be a regular on a corner. Improving at 3B but might move to LF/1B, where he still projects to fit an everyday profile.
