Swing has undergone some mechanical overhaul this year, still very quiet at setup, starts wider, long stride, more balanced; stiff, minimal load, mechanical stride, gets flat-footed at trigger, creates torque but costs him length into the zone; bat speed pushes plus, explosive wrists, doesn't get a ton out of his legs, will leverage up in hitter's counts; gets bottom hand-heavy, poor barrel control, lots of rollovers, weak infield contact, well above-average swing-and-miss; struggles with off-speed recognition, right-right spin
Plus raw, powerful wrists and shoulders, physicality to damage the baseball; lack of consistent lower-half engagement, poor pitch recognition, generally flat swing plane limit in-game utility; power plays mostly to center/left-center in hitter's count
4.19 average on 8 clocks, efficient stride gets to speed quickly, plays to full utility in the outfield; reads on the bases still raw, some uncertain crossovers on stolen-base attempts; potential to develop into 20-bag threat
Reads are still raw at times, lacks elite pickup off the bat; feel for trajectory, gets to speed quickly, routes are generally efficient, excellent closing speed, controls body pursing balls into the gaps; can struggle going back on balls, physicality to develop above-average utility
Fire hose, plus-plus velocity, low trackers lack a ton of carry at times, but get where they're going very quickly; solid accuracy on the move
Gettys tantalizes with elite athleticism and big-time raw tools. He's a physical specimen with a huge arm, plus speed and raw power, and the makings of a solid-average glove in centerfield. The big question remains whether he'll ever hit enough for it to matter. He's attempted to make some adjustments to his setup and swing, but he remains oddly stiff in his setup and launch, and while he's shown improvement in his balance and stride, the barrel delivery remains below-average. If he can find himself a hitting coach that can figure out how to unlock his power and draw out more consistent contact, there remains all-star potential here. As is, he offers enough speed, defense, and nascent game power to profile as a big-leaguer even in spite of a below-average offensive trajectory.
