Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 35 Lacks the hit tool for regular big-league profile, even at glove-first position. Singles hitter with pull-oriented contact. Minimal bat-speed from frame that lacks strength; beaten by plus velocity; consistently struggled to cover outer-half; would be exposed offensively if given everyday at-bats.
Power 30 Well below-average power, not part of offensive game. Singles contact; lacks strength to even drive the gaps; slightly more authoritative drives to pull side.
Baserunning/Speed 60 above-average to plus runner, plays up to 60-grade from good base running instincts. Gets out of his swing and up the line well; fair stolen base capability; can score from second and/or go 1st to 3rd.
Glove 60 Plus glove at SS; impressive glovework; has natural defensive tools and polish to finish plays. Loose, fluid defensive actions; completed plays to both sides and on the run; agile and mobile w/ quick first step to both his left and right. Standout defender; looked at home defensively.
Arm 55 At least above-average arm-strength, chance tick more; consistent carry across the IF w/ reliable accuracy; showed he can finish arm-strength plays on challenge balls to the deep 5/6 hole.

Fairly safe low-ceiling prospect; big-league utility lies in defensive value at SS w/ ability to slot all around the IF. Lacks bat for everyday profile. Provides bench value w/ glove, arm, speed. Paul Janish type toolset. Moderate interest.
