Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 55 Pushing through age-appropriate struggles as teenager in Low-A, though shows the tools to adjust. Extremely advanced offensive feel: polished sense of the zone, mature presence in the box, makes pitchers work to his pace. Direct swing-path w/o tons of length; even if pure hit tool is 50, on-base ability projects it to 55.

Game Power 40 60 Rare young hitter w/ the lift, contact, and approach to bring out raw power in games right now. Ceiling of 25+ HR bat at maturity.

Raw Power 55 60 Above-avg raw power now; impressive loft power to all parts of the park; really stands out in an A-Ball BP; future plus as his frame firms up.

Run 40 30 Below-avg runner who has good enough instincts to not hurt you on the bases early in his career. Body type that slows down a step w/ age.

Field 40 50 Splitting time between 1B and 3B now, but best at 1B long-term. Range and lateral agility are iffy, but has the instincts+makeup to work himself into a serviceable 1B glove in time.

Throw 45 45 Didn't see arm tested much in short look. Won't factor into the equation a ton at 1B, just needs to be able to start the 1B-led double play.

Overall Summary
High-character player w/ special makeup, instincts, and intangibles. Great teammate, carries himself w/ an unusual maturity and presence. Tools of a middle-of-the-order slugger that produces average and power from the 1B spot. Age/proximity/bat-only profile add risk.
