2018 Extreme 50 Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 Wide stance, open with a crouch; deep load, tight coil, significant wrap; hands inconsistent at trigger, drift forward, extreme length into zone; leveraged swing, plus bat speed, loop in path, gets under the ball, weak fly ball contact; waffles between mild inverted leg lift and aggressive leg kick, aggressive weight transfer, early to front side with stiffness; poor spin recognition, present guess hitter, wants to extend, inner-third hole, expands against anything soft or spin, loads of swing-and-miss; minimal progress honing approach since last summer, bat speed and fluidity suggest ample room for projection
Power 50 Plus pull-side raw, above-average to all fields; leveraged swing with bat path to lift the ball, plus bat speed; triple-digit exit velocities, hard line-drive contact, towering pull-side fly balls in BP; approach limits game utility, mistake hitter at present
Baserunning/Speed 50 Above-average present runner, 4.24 home-to-first, moderate pick-up, second gear, pushes plus underway; fluid motion, high-intensity runner; present utility plays down on the bases, raw cross-over, uneven reads, poor decision-making, will play out of control; should settle in as average tool once physically maxed
Glove 55 Ball hawk, all-out style, shows track-and-close, propensity for highlight-reel catches; better reads and routes in right, struggles with right-at-him reads in center, raw defender with instincts, questionable decision-making at times, will throw behind runners, try to do too much; plus potential in right with potential average utility in center
Arm 60 Raw arm strength pushes plus-plus, excellent velocity, throws hold their lines with carry; generally accurate, will uncork some wild ones; will get over-aggressive in decision-making

Mieses is a high-volatility prospect with an above-average regular ceiling if everything comes together. His all-out style of play, straight-line speed, and canon of an arm give him projection for utility in all three outfield spots, with a present trajectory towards a lefty-mashing fourth-outfielder profile.
