Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 50 Uphill swing plane that trades contact for power. Aggressive approach, hunts fastballs early and overswings, needs to tone down approach and be more patient to get to future-average hit tool against better pitching. Young enough to project on contact ability and has the bat speed to do it.

Field 40 50 Stiff, hard-handed actions at second base, has range to get to balls but doesn't always field cleanly, good footwork and read hops well. Still new to the position, see potential to be average defender at 2B w/ more reps.

Throw 45 45 Fringy arm strength, iffy on the left side of the infield; playable part-time at 3B, but arm profiles better at 2B if he's getting everyday playing time.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of everyday second baseman w/ well rounded set of average tools. Former 3B now adjusting to 2B, where the arm plays better. Risk to profile given double-projection on hit tool.
