Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 40 60 Hits from a slightly open, wide stance, good rhythm, loose hands, works all fields, plus bat speed, can catch up to most velocity, slightly uphill swing plane, but hit balls have carry and doesn't need to hit it hard to get on base, works counts, hangs in v. LHP but struggled against better velocity from that side, recognizes pitches, future-plus hitter.

Game Power 40 50 Premium bat speed and ability to work the whole field should play to full grade.

Run 55 55 Abv-average runner, 4.12-4.17 HP-to-1B, athletic, gets out of the box quick, could slow down a step as he matures and gets older; did not attempt a SB in viewing.

Field 45 55 Potential to be an above-average defender in LF, covers ground and has quality first-step reactions, gets to hit balls quickly, consistent routes and reads to the ball, could play CF in an everyday capacity as well but lack of arm strength and premium speed will keep at average.

Throw 40 40 Below-average arm strength, throws lack carry, not a weapon, only plays in LF/CF, accurate to cut-off men.

Overall Summary
While he could play CF and be an average defender there, lack of necessary arm strength will likely force a move to LF in the long-run. Still see as an average regular/everyday outfielder.
