Immature, doesn't keep focus all the time, will hustle in spurts.
45; Second-Division Starter
Short stride, off balance, max effort; above-average bat speed, lots of noise, leans on back foot often, throws hands at ball, loud contact potential, ball jumps off bat when he connects, wild mechanics make him late on plus velo, questionable bat-to-ball ability, pulls head too easily, lacked an approach, athletic stroke leaves potential to improve tool; physical tools allow for a fringe average utility projection.
Strength in frame creates plus raw power, flashes ability to improve mild leverage, game power lags due to contact issues, power comes with decent loft; projects potential mid-teens power.
Clocked at 4.14, maintains speed from station to station; shows burst out of the box.
Choppy mover, above-average range for right field, athletic for a corner spot, covers ground quickly, careless on routine plays, profiles better in right than in center field.
Fringe-average arm strength; short arms a bit, throws with enough velo to efficiently hit cut off men.
Clark’s potential lies above what his realistic impact will be at the major league level. While he’s still young in High-A, his mechanics and approach are still too wild to let his natural hitting ability play the way it should. He has the capability to play center, but I question his ability to lead an outfield. His raw tools are evident, but there’s just too many holes in his game to project him as a likely major-league caliber starter.
