MLB ETA Risk Factor OFP Realistic Role Video
2017 Medium 55 Capable, above avg CF Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 long bat path with smooth stroke; above avg bat speed; patient approach that works deep counts; prone to swing-miss, inconsistent contact; more of an all-fields approach
Power 55 pull- and middle-of-field power; shows some loft to opposite field; swing path will generate loft; contact consistency the biggest question mark to actualizing power
Baserunning/Speed 45 long legs/stride; more speed underway and in field; has track record of being a SB threat
Glove 55 plus range, covers a lot of ground; reads and routes still developing; looks capable of staying in CF
Arm 60 accurate and strong, plus carry and distance; will deter running game

CF with mostly above avg tool set and avg hit tool. Former 1st round pick, tall, long-legged frame capable of manning CF. Smooth, longer bat path limits future hit tool to avg due to swing-miss tendencies and inconsistent contact. Shows plus power in BP, mostly focused up the middle and to pull side. Bat path and strength should generate avg-above avg power results. Glove is not flashy, but highly capable in CF with plus range. Arm is easy plus and capable of impact. Avg present speed, but would anticipate a tick dropoff due to body size/type. Profiles as capable, above avg CF.
