Piecemeal swing; front foot plants early, bat wrap, hands drift, arm bar; length into the zone, plus bat speed; aggressive early in count, moderate swing-and-miss, will expand; tendency to pull, generates solid contact to find hits; low walk totals will limit on-base potential
55 raw, game power is to pull side, some loft and strength to drive it up middle; sells out to generate, struggles to consistently tap into it in games; disjointed swing mechanics, more level swing, more doubles than homers; playing time will limit numbers
Quick strides, wide gait, runs out grounders; not a threat to steal
Inconsistent glove; struggles with reads and route efficiency; has played some first base
Accurate with mild carry, below-average arm strength; best fit for LF
Corner outfielder with an average hit tool and below-average complementary tool set. The swing mechanics have some disjoint, and there's ample swing-and-miss despite plus bat speed. Waldrop's raw power shows as above-average, though he has to sell out to generate it. That power plays below-average in games on account of a level swing and contact issues. He struggles with the leather on the outfield grass and has been used at first. The arm is a bit light, though accuracy helps it play. Speed is a tick below average, and he runs with effort. Potential fit as bench bat, with some defensive versatility between first and the corners.
