Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 55 Average bat speed. Even stance with wide base and knees spaced; arms start high and load at shoulder height. Leg lift and smooth, efficient weight transfer; simple swing mechanics that he repeats well. Line drive swing plane. Plus plate discipline; good plan of attack at the plate; identifies secondary pitches well and track well.
Power 35 40 raw. Mostly gaps. Swing geared towards contact and line drives. Does not sell out to drive ball in the air. Uses whole field, but best power straight away. Will jump on and hammer mistakes to pull side.
Baserunning/Speed 45 Below average raw speed; plays slightly up because of Baseball I.Q.. Below average foot speed and acceleration. Not a real stolen base threat and shouldn’t be running, but can take one here and there if pitcher forgets about him.
Glove 45 Fringe average range. Actions and mobility fringy and hands inconsistent; capable of making tough play and then booting an easy one. Below average instincts and feel in the infield; below average clock.
Arm 45 Below average arm strength. Above average accuracy.

50; Second Division Second Baseman. Refsnyder will hit for average and get on base, but provides little in the way of speed, power or defensive value.
