Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 55 Quick bat; pretty swing; has life in his hands; above-average batspeed; fluid through the strike zone; aggressive with pitch selection; wide strike zone - will chase fastballs up; lets swing loose; creates leverage in stroke; questions on approach; looks to consistently pull; neglects outer third with eyes - leads to opening early and yanking head of the bat; carved ball lazily to opposite field; must develop gap-to-gap mindset to reach hitting potential; hitting ability is there.
Power 50 Puts the ball in play with backspin; creates lift with swing; primarily pull-side power; can put a charge into offerings middle-in; ability to drive ball to all fields with proper mindset; 12-15 home run peak projection; high doubles potential
Baserunning/Speed 45 Slow out of box; timed 4.45-4.57 down the line - not digging or running overly hard; may swipe a base or two if engaged in this aspect of the game.
Glove 45 Choppy footwork around second base bag; ok hands; comes in on ball well; seems unsure of himself at times; average reactions/reads in the infield; needs work with pre-pitch anticipation; handled every chance his way in left field; was not tested by any plays; saw the ball off the bat quickly and was moving on contact.
Arm 50 Enough arm for right-side of the diamond; flashes strength when needs it; will play in either center or left field; won't be a weapon, but not one to be consistently taken advantage of.

Bat first player; value to a roster tied into level of offensive production; natural hitting ability; has potential to play up as a high average hitter with some pop if improvements in secondary skills take; will surprise with pop, but seems to fall in love with it; must learn that is not the type of hitter he is; not big on the way he plays the game; concerned that ability to adjust quickly and willingness to do so is not there; not likely to stick as long-term regular for me.
