Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 switch hitter with quick, simple load and swing; tendency to pull grounders or push flies to opposite field; struggles with elevated FB and offspeed low in zone; speed to bunt for hits; AVG bat speed with a lot of swing-miss
Power 20 line drives to gaps without much carry; not a power threat; mostly a singles hitter; speed to stretch hits, but doesn't drive ball with frequency to follow through
Baserunning/Speed 75 easy speed; keeps defenses on edge as threat to bunt; quick to accelerate; stolen base threat, but not as prevalent as grade would indicate
Glove 55 speed allows for plus range; glove itself is steady; routes and reads can be improved--speed covers most flaws
Arm 40 low, short trajectory throws with little arc; accurate but struggles to reach cutoff without bouncing
Overall

Light-bat outfielder with elite speed-based game. Switch hitter with simple swing. Lots of swing-miss to approach and struggles to drive ball with much authority. Might run into a couple over the course of season, but power is light. Mostly limited to singles, despite speed. Speed is plus-plus on a bad day; constant threat to bunt for hits and steal bases. AVG to above AVG defender with plus range. Arm leaves some to be desired--low throws without much carry. History of injuries has limited his track record. Profiles as 4/5 OF, pinch runner-type.
