Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 70 Premium bat speed with barrel snapping through zone thanks to strong forearms and wrists; consistent trigger with mild leg kick and minimal hand load allows bat to get to the zone in consistent fashion; loud contact from linear swing allows for routine line drives to all fields; easy contact ability thanks to uncanny balance for his age; stands right on top of the plate allowing for good coverage; sees spin well and is willing to take pitches and work counts; gifted natural hitter that could hit .300 at MLB level.
Power 40 Minimal game power at present despite electric bat speed; has potential to add strength to wiry frame; combined with addition of some mild leverage in swing could result in 10-12 home runs and speed will help provide doubles and triples on line drives to the gaps.
Baserunning/Speed 70 Showed several times in 4.08-4.13 range during series; gets out of the box well and reaches top speed quickly; graceful runner that covers a ton of ground very quickly; shows instincts on the bases and gets good jumps against pitchers; stole second base easily on 1.34 delivery/1.87 pop; top-end speed plays well taking extra bases; impact speed with developing instincts that will result in 30+ stolen bases annually.
Glove 60 Reads ball well off the bat with quick first step; consistently showed proper direction with first step; routes were direct on balls to both sides; came in well on soft liners and showed ability to track balls over his head in center field; quick first step and plus-plus speed lend to good range in all directions; high-end defender at premium position.
Arm 70 Consistently showed plus velocity on throws from center field; unleashed several high-velocity throws worthy of plus-plus grades; throws were accurate to all bases and displayed good carry en route; arm plays well in center field.

Impact defensive profile at up the middle position; speed plays on both sides of the ball; potential top of the order hitter that posts high averages, solid OBP, and wreaks havoc on the bases; potential to develop strength that augments premium bat speed and leads to some power; confident player with strong makeup; shows instincts on the field.
