Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 50 55 At best when looking to line drive to all fields; showed it pullside and oppo. Above-average feel for strikezone; sequencing. Length to swing limits ceiling; finds barrel on FBs, missed hittable junk trying to drive. Plus bat-speed makes swing length playable.

Game Power 40 50 Currently gap-to-gap, has juice to clear fence, but swing lengthens trying to power up, settles in best with line drive stroke. Must show he can barrel junk; feel to hit suggests he can.

Overall Summary
Limited to 1B, bat-only prospect, offense has to carry profile. Falls short of everyday role as a right-handed bat without prototype corner power. Ceiling of bench bat on the short side of a platoon.
