Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 30 Plus bat speed; quick hands. Open start; strides closed; toe tap trigger (formely used a small leg kick); high elbow and high hand load; steep approach. Often lunges with upper body and collapses back side. Some loopiness to swing path; line drive plane but often sprays/slaps. Well below average plate discipline; expands his zone in all directions. Does not identify spin; well below average pitch recognition. Does not track pitches well. Can handle velocity over the plate; can’t adjust to velo on hands. Good low ball hitter. Does use the whole field, but best straight away. Some inconsistency in swing mechanics; tinkers; and doesn’t repeat swing well.
Power 35 Above average raw power and flashes plus to pull side. Power plays mostly to gaps in games; hit tool severely limits utility. Best game power straight away to pull.
Baserunning/Speed 60 Plus speed; easy acceleration and long, athletic strides. Speed plays at plus; covers a lot of ground in the field; good jumps stealing; smart baserunner; will take extra base.
Glove 60 Plus range; covers plenty of ground to both sides. Plus reads and routes. Could play all three outfield spots.
Arm 50 Average arm strength. Average accuracy.

35; Low Bench, Up/Down. Williams can play centerfield and run, but won’t hit enough to play a significant big league role. His baseball instincts and approach at the plate make his tools play down.
