Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 45 Unreal plus-plus bat-speed through an explosive stroke; takes a huge cut at the occasional expense of barrel-control; aggressive offensive approach that's still toning down; will come w/ some strikeouts even at full maturity. Power-oriented swing, but hits the ball so hard hit tool MIGHT get to full 50-grade even w/o truly hitter-ish tendencies. Over-swings w/ 2-strikes; can lose backside balance and get on the front foot. Patience/approach making improvements; still showed some difficulty ID'ing breaking balls.
Power 60 Natural strength, compact build, and huge batspeed combine for big raw power that he can get to in games. Extra-loud contact; serious exit velo off the barrel; ripped hard-hit line-drives all over the field when he was making contact. Advanced ability for age to clear hips on inside pitches and drive balls w/ HR loft to pullside. Hits the ball as hard as anyone in the minors. 20+ HR to come.
Baserunning/Speed 55 Plus runner presently who likely loses half-step over time. Big swing prevents speed from playing plus going H/1st. Better runner underway; powerful running stride that's more strong than fluid. Aggressive BR who was consistently looking to take an extra base.
Glove 55 Might lack the first step and/or gliding stride-length to truly profile in CF. High-energy defender who still covers good ground; solid-avg type of glove for a corner. Capable of sliding over to CF in a pinch during younger years.
Arm 55 Limited challenge plays this series; one game throw showed solid-avg arm-strength and carry. Enough arm for RF.
Overall

Realistic ceiling of athletic, abv-avg RF regular w/ explosive, power-based toolset. Higher-risk ceiling of R60 all-star contributor if pure hitting ability comes on and strikeouts decrease. Really fun player to watch; high-energy gamer w/ extremely loud raw tools.
