Tool Present Future Comments
Hit 30 45 Deep projection hit tool, lacks strength to hit right now. Better swing from LH side, more bat control and ability to use both fields. Developing approach, expands outside the zone at times, shows signs of hitting w/ a plan.

Game Power 30 40 More lift and preset game power as LHH. Will be a few years before power really shows up. Projects as an 8-12 HR type w/ doubles power.

Raw Power 30 45 More present power from left side of the plate; limited authority w/ right-side contact in BP. Fluid, loose hands at the plate on rangy, athletic frame that will get much stronger.

Field 45 50 Fluid infield actions and soft hands, tools to be avg defender at SS. More comfortable at SS than 2B, less familiar w/ footwork and angles to the ball at the keystone. Insincts/playmaking improved throughout season.

Throw 50 55 Tick above-avg strength and carry w/ fluid arm-stroke. Plays down a half grade because he's still learning to throw from different angles and on the run, but can adjust.

Overall Summary
Lotto ticket prospect, wide array of potential future outcomes. Requires significant projection, but has ingredients of everyday shortstop. Risk to profile: long way to go at the plate, still numerous years from ML ready, needs time to develop at the plate.
