Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 20 45 Loose, leveraged path from both sides, athletic look to stroke, balanced base; limited bat control from both sides, wild cut w/ frequent whiffs and mishits. Struggling badly right now in full-season ball, looks overmatched and not able to show what he can do in games. Long-range projection hit tool.

Raw Power 45 50 Flashes projectable raw from both sides w/ extreme physical projection left. Will get to at least avg, maybe more if his body breaks a certain way.

Run 50 45 Better underway than up the line or for steals; long, graceful strides once he's going; will slow a step w/ maturity.

Field 45 55 Moves between 2B/SS/3B now w/ athletic, fluid actions. Light first step and soft hands, controls body on the charge well for size. Could be an avg defender at SS, above-avg if he moves to 3B.

Throw 50 55 Didn't see arm tested much. Projects at least avg, easy to see finishing above-avg as long-levered frame fills out. Fluid arm-stroke w/ easy carry across the dirt. Enough for either SS or 3B.

Overall Summary
Physical specimen w/ classic high-risk, high-reward profile. Athleticism, switch-hitting bat, and center-diamond profile give lots of upside but he's still very raw in most facets of the game. Badly overmatched in A-Ball to start the season and has a ways to go offensively.
