Hit 70 80 Complete hitter; top-of-scale bat speed, barrel-feel, strength to do damage to all fields. Able to hit different pitch types around zone without expanding; aggressive in zone but will take walks. Only vulnerability is hard spin away and player shows feel to hit for adjustments at MLB level.

Overall Summary
Elite hitting prospect who could impact ML level right now. Lacks defensive value to be a true 80 prospect, but outstanding hit/power combo makes him a generational talent with only fine-tuning left at the minor league level.
