Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 30 Open stance, steps in to close, short load and short to ball. Sets up to try and slash into left field and run. Good bat control and has an idea at the plate, but was vulnerable to spin at times. Will bunt for a hit when he can.
Power 20 Opposite field approach doesn't even allow for gap power. May occasionally dump one into the left field corner for a double, but slugging is not going to be part of his game.
Baserunning/Speed 35 4.3 to 4.4 from the left side. Slash and run approach gets him out of the box quickly, but there just isn't much footspeed here. It's less noticeable in the field due to his good instincts and first step. Moves well laterally but lacks straight line speed. Smart, aggressive baserunner that can pick his spots at this level, but unlikely to be a significant basestealing threat in the majors.
Glove 60 Elite hands and actions. Preternatural instincts in the field, smooth around the bag. Lacks the overall quickness and arm you expect in a plus shortstop, but everything else is so good it doesn't matter.
Arm 55 Only average arm strength and will get to more throws then he can make. Overall accuracy of throws along with his quick transfer and trigger makes this play up.

Guillorme is a difficult player to evaluate in a traditional five-tool report. He does not show the traditional athleticism or arm that you would assume comes with a 6 shortstop glove, but his instincts in the field make up for his lack of footspeed, and his quick hands cover for an only average arm. The bat is very light and going to limit him to an occasional major league bench role at best, but his defensive abilities up the middle should keep him in employed in the upper minors for a decade.
