2016 Medium 60 Starting Shortstop with plus-plus speed Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 55 up the middle approach; leg lift and body coil, long bat wrap makes for long swing path; plus bat speed, strong wrists compensate; everything moves forward in sync post-coil; swing and miss in approach; aggressive early in counts
Power 30 low line-drive stroke; gets decent carry, but seems limited to warning track; extra base threat due to speed; line-drive swing/approach makes him dangerous to the gaps
Baserunning/Speed 70 easy speed and growing understanding of how to use it; will turn singles to doubles, doubles to triples; 4.14 time to first despite being slow out of the box
Glove 55 fluid in field; hands are reactive and smooth; speed provides range, though still working to improve timing/reads; not flashy, but highly capable
Arm 55 can throw on the run; makes throw from hole; arm works easy
Overall

SS with plus-plus speed and above-average tool set. Speed is the carrying tool; boosts the aggregate skill set. Long swing path from bat wrap/body coil, but generates bat speed with wrist strength and bat whip. Line-drive, up the middle approach. Aggressive, swing-and-miss approach will keep from plus on base skills. Light on power, but will rack up extra base hits with speed. Capable and dependable defender, but not elite in field. Average to above-average player who should remain productive even if speed diminishes.
