2016 Medium 50 Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 60 hard contact, line drive stroke; will use the whole field, but mostly up the middle approach; hands stay back with slight bat wrap, throws weight forward a hair early putting him out in front of pitches at times; strength in forearms/wrists generate plus batspeed
Power 45 some pull power to the gap; swing doesn't sell out for power; line drives over fly balls approach; gap to gap focus will lead to lots of doubles
Baserunning/Speed 35 not quick; solid baserunner but not a burner
Glove 45 build and org depth make him not likely to last at SS; ranges better to his left than his right; glove is capable but avg
Arm 50 makes all the necessary throws with good carry; arm would play at 3rd

21 year-old, former 1st round infielder with plus future hit tool. Quick, quiet bat the generates loud contact. Line drive, up the middle approach. Doubles over home runs power. Glove is a tick below avg; combined with build, likely to move off SS before long. Has the arm to handle 3B; glove and range would play at 2B. Profiles better at 2B given compactness of body. Hit tool will carry and play.
