Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 40 Low-average, high-power producer who will come w/ strikeouts. Lengthy swing-path geared to pull FBs, consistent swing/miss on secondary stuff w/ limited signs of pitch recognition. Lack of bat-to-ball skill adds risk to profile.

Game Power 40 50 Advanced HR threat for level, as all his raw comes into games against low-minors pitching. Enough power for 15-20 HRs over a full season, though might not get in the lineup enough to reach those totals.

Raw Power 55 60 Big, strong guy w/ easy above-avg raw to both fields. Towering fly ball drives off his bat, even more coming as he firms up his body.

Run 40 40 Below-avg runner w/ heavy stride. Not a clogger underway, but won't contribute on the bases.

Field 40 50 Developing behind the plate, has made strides since past looks. Still sets up stiff and gets grabby at times. Overall actions, quiet targets, lateral mobility, and blocking have all improved. Tools to be an avg defender w/ continued reps.

Throw 55 55 Above-avg throwing arm is best defensive attribute. Strong carry, firm lines through targets, projects to put a dent in the running game.

Overall Summary
Power and arm-strength to fit as a role player or solid backup at catcher. Needs to stay behind the plate to have value, as hit tool won't be enough to get him regular ABs as a 1B-only.
