Hit 30 40 Late on hittable pitches up in the zone; vulnerable away despite short load, direct bat path b/c of late timing. When cheats, vulnerable to spin. Projection forward based on continued timing adjustment; average bat speed.

Overall Summary
Power tool, but not much else to carry value to major league level; lacks athleticism. Without providing defensive value as a corner outfielder, profiles best as a AAAA emergency call-up player, adding some pop off the bench.
