Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 20 45 Stiff swing w/ limited feel to hit; grooved path, takes an aggressive fastball hack at every pitch; frequently chases/expands against soft stuff, tons of present swing-and-miss. Never will be a threat for average but has such special power he will keep pitchers honest.

Field 55 55 Above-avg RF defender w/ good mobility and athleticism for the position. Could handle CF in a pinch but fits best on a corner long-term.

Throw 70 70 Game-changing arm strength, one of the best arms in the minors. Absolute cannon that frequently gets the ball to the dirt in the air from the warning track and is a weapon at all times.

Overall Summary
Total risk/reward player with polarizing toolset. Massive ceiling, though there's a large gap between that and his floor. Special power gives star potential if contact ability can improve, but won't be much without more polished approach and bat-to-ball skill.
