On 40-Man Roster: No
Physical Description
XL frame w/ well-build strength throughout. Has the frame of a slugger. Will need to keep body in check to stay off of LF/1B, but more athletic than he looks.

Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Strong pass through the zone; aggressive overall cut w/ hooked hand-path that's geared to pull. Loud contact when squared, though swings himself out of ABs and will need to tighten his zone. Struggles vs. LHP, might always have heavy platoon split. Has the raw tools to hit, though contact/approach require some dreaming.

Game Power 30 50 Has the power for 15-18 HRs over a full season if his hit tool/approach allow consistent contact. Will take time for it to fully come into game action.

Raw Power 55 60 Strong frame and LH raw power really stand out. Drives the ball w/ authority and present lift to all parts of the park. Chance for plus raw at maturity.

Run 40 40 Below-avg runner that's a tick better underway. Big body and thick lower-half take a few steps to get going.

Field 40 45 Currently in RF but likely lacks mobility and routes to stay there. Profiles as LF/1B as large frame fills out even more.

Throw 55 55 Above-avg arm w/ strong lines and easy carry back to the infield. RF fit. Was low-90s as a RHP in high school.

Overall Summary
Physicality, LH power potential, strong OF throwing arm can get him to the big leagues, though hitting ability/overall offensive polish is still raw. Upside of corner slugger or righty-mashing platoon bat w/ plenty of risk and projection required.
