Hit 45 55 Plus approach for age and level; doesn't expand. Plus barrel-feel; handsy swing makes consistent hard contact. Recognizes spin; keeps weight back, drops barrel. Deep load, brief bat-wrap, swing length may be challenged by better velo; has feel to adjust.

Overall Summary
Exciting hit-power combination in corner OF body gives ceiling of above-avg regular. Exceptional feel for strikezone and ability to pick up spin. Swing gets long, but barrel-feel and approach compensate. There is risk he could move to first eventually.
