Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 45 Average bat speed. Simple swing mechanics; tiny stride. Stiff lead and sometimes loopy bat path. Good idea of the strike zone, but passive approach at the plate. Takes pitches all the way in hitter’s counts. No real plan of attack; rarely looking to do damage. Poor at bats against same handed pitching.
Power 55 55 raw. Best power to pull. Some uppercut in his swing. Game power plays down due to passive approach.
Baserunning/Speed 40 Stocky actions running; longer strides. Better underway. Not a big threat on the basepaths; steals on baseball instincts more than speed. Average baserunner; will go 1st to 3rd.
Glove 55 Fringe average reads and routes. Corner actions, mobility and acceleration.
Arm 50 Average arm strength; accurate.

Fringe average/Platoon corner outfielder. No plus/carry tool. Overly passive approach mitigates effectiveness of his tools. Doesn't hit same handed pitching.
