2017 High 50 Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 45 quick, plus-plus batspeed with short downward stroke; late, subtle hitch before loading hands forces swing to speed up--hurts ability to pull ball aggressively; aggressive approach and proneness to swing-miss will limit ability to get on base
Power 50 when timing is right, will show ability to drive ball with power to gaps; mechanics of swing tend to push to opposite field; presently reliant on capitalizing on mistakes; realizing power dependent on channeling aggressiveness
Baserunning/Speed 55 max effort runner; above avg speed but not a true SB threat; speed to bunt for hits
Glove 50 athletic and moves well in the field; struggles with some reads, particularly going back; likely limited to corner role
Arm 50 showed arm capable of handling RF; some carry to throws but not enough of a deterrent to limit opposing runners

Corner OF with lightning quick bat and mostly avg tool set. Former 1st round pick, has elite batspeed, but combination of swing mechanics, over-aggressiveness, and swing-miss tendencies limit ability to consistently barrel ball and keeps hit tool below avg. Bat speed can generate power, but more of a mistake hitter at present. Consistency in hit tool will need to improve for power to realize. Glove/arm grade out as future avg; athleticism makes him capable. Above avg speed that aids athleticism. Will always get opportunities given athleticism and bat speed. Capitalizing on potential more risky on this enigmatic talent.
