Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 65 Excellent bat-to-ball skills from both sides of the plate; fluid swing; clean; gets into zone quickly; controls the bat very well; uses the entire field; contact/line-drive swing; good bat speed; the kid is a hitter; can square velocity; tracks the ball well; natural.
Power 20 Limited strength; swing not geared for over-the-fence power; can generate slugging through doubles/triples; has extra-base hit potential; not a power threat.
Baserunning/Speed 65 Inconsistent run; can show 7 times to first; more than enough speed to impact game; can get too causal on base; drifts aggressively off first; has 30-plus stolen base potential; needs baserunning refinement.
Glove 70 Silky smooth leather; well above average actions; soft hands; absorbs the ball; natural fielder when focused; good backhand pickup; good on balls directly at him; very good range/lateral quickness; it’s all very easy; true Venezuelan shortstop; projects to stay at position.
Arm 60 Strong arm; easy plus; throwing mechanics can get sloppy; can whip it from lower slot and lose accuracy; when he needs to gear up, he has plenty of arm strength; can make every throw; weapon.

Not a max-effort player; can give away at-bats; frustrating; makes it all look very easy, both with the glove and when it comes to contact; when he wants to shine, he can.

Impact shortstop at highest level; easy plus glove; easy plus run; plus arm; plus potential hit tool; natural player; questionable work ethic/effort; limited power; leadoff potential if bat develops; has idea/approach at the plate; down-the-lineup glove-first type as a floor.
