Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 20 Below-average bat speed; bat wrap; swing is muscled and lacks fluidity; below-average barrel control; mild load with toe tap; becomes unbalanced often; minimal pitch recognition skills; will struggle against off speed and spin; slap hitter that will struggle to make enough contact to hit regularly.
Power 20 Fringe raw power; linear swing; will not play in-game due to poor hit tool and lack of leverage.
Baserunning/Speed 40 Below-average speed; lacks a first gear.
Glove 55 Efficient footwork; ability to move laterally on blocking; strong forearms and wrists for framing; has improved framing since last season; struggles on catching pitches up in zone; can get lazy and sloppy behind the plate.
Arm 55 Plus arm strength; 2.00 pop time; coils hand on throws, causing slower times; accurate throws

Signed as an international free agent out of the Dominican Republic in 2010. Severino is a defense-first player that lacks the hit tool necessary to start in the majors. The glove alone is not enough to carry him as a starting option, and the bat has shown no signs of consistency. His makeup has been questionable in all of my viewings heading back to last year.
