Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Raw overall hit tool w/ lots of present contact issues. Will need significant pro reps to handle high-level arms. Limited bat control, length to path, FB hitter w/ consistent struggle against advanced secondary stuff.

Game Power 40 50 Strength for 15-20 HR over a full season, but don't know if he'll get enough ABs to reach that total.

Raw Power 50 60 Easy raw power from natural strength and size. Ball explodes off bat when squared, but lack of bat control limits consistency of lift and hard contact in BP. Will grow into plus raw as he refines this.

Run 40 40 Below-avg runner w/ thick lower-half. Won't offer much on the bases and has some potential to slow down a step as he fills out XL frame.

Field 40 45 Has work to do to stick at 3B. Slow-footed w/ iffy lateral range or ability to charge the ball. At his size and body type, will be a candidate to move to 1B.

Throw 50 50 Solid throwing arm that's easily enough for the left side of the infield. Less of a factor if he moves to 1B.

Overall Summary
Size and raw can get him to the big leagues, don't think he hits enough to fully unlock power potential. Risky bat-first profile w/ even more pressure to hit if he moves to 1B.
