Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Solid-average batspeed right-handed; plus batspeed left-handed; quick hands; a bit of length to the swing due to early extension; inconsistent pulling hands inside of ball - swing can look stiff and choppy; more of a defensive hitter right-handed; tries to work count; presently on the indecisive side attacking the ball - looking to be too fine; see settling into an approach as experience in upper levels builds; line drive stroke; swing to use the whole field; questions on the consistency of hard contact produce against high quality arms over the long-term.
Power 45 Strength to tap into; leverage in stroke left-handed; can turn on the ball; pull-side power from both sides of the plate; gap hitter when going the other way; not a big lift guy; see power being more occasional over-the-fence pop - 8-10 home runs; chance to hit for fair share of doubles and a handful of triples.
Baserunning/Speed 60 4.18-4.22 down line; shows extra gear on the bases and in the field; working to improve reading of pitchers - very engaged when reaching base; see 20 stolen base potential; wheels to stretch hits in front of outfielders and push extra bases in the gaps; asset on the bases.
Glove 60 Excellent closing speed; long strides; hunts down balls into the gaps; sees the ball of the bat well; good outfield fundamentals; limits drifting; gets body in position to throw; charges and cuts ball off well; chops to stick in center over the long-run; ability to play all three outfield positions; defense best present aspect of game in terms of polish.
Arm 50 Longer throwing motion; average accuracy; throws lose some steam at the tail end; not afraid to throw; can possibly squeeze out a little more strength.

Excellent athlete; overall game is still on the raw side; type of player that can take a big step forward as experience against quality competition builds; swing left me a little flat in this look; have some questions as to whether ability to adjust swing is there; strong defensive skills - can add value to roster if bat falls short; potential to hold down a regular job if everything comes together, but see this player as a fourth outfielder over the long-run of the career.
