Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 45 Average bat speed; minimal noise in swing; quiet hands with barrel control; swing can become elongated; mild load; bottom half unbalanced at times; front side will leak open; mild recognition of spin; struggles against same-side spin; strong approach with ability to make in-game adjustments.
Power 40 Average raw power; mild leverage; raw plays down in game due to average bat speed and unbalanced bottom half against spin.
Baserunning/Speed 50 ~4.20 home to first times; average speed and second gear; agile player.
Glove 55 Speed and agility to play all three OF positions; profiles best on corners due to lack of second gear athleticism; efficient first jump and displays perfect reads and routes; agressive OF.
Arm 55 Above-average arm strength; carry from medium depth; accurate.

Yastrzemski lacks a carrying tool but the skill set will be valuable in the majors. He can play all three outfield positions and can be a useful option as a second division starter or a 4th OF. His hustle and makeup makes for a solid bench option or club depth. The profile is nearly a finished product with success in the upper minors.

Round Drafted: 14th round, 2013
Why: 4 year starter at Vanderbilt; average tools across board with strong makeup; bloodlines.
