2019 High 55 No
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Hits from a tall even stance with above-average bat speed; hands start high but loads just below shoulder; leg kick; some length, can catch up to velo; lacks plate discipline, aggressive hitter; needs to improve contact skills; average hit tool at full utility
Power 55 Present is plus raw, could grow as he fills out frame; should play to above-average at full utility with bat speed and loft on hit balls
Baserunning/Speed 60 Plus runner; 4.19 to 1B, 3.69 on a jail-break; aggressive baserunner, runs better than size suggests
Glove 45 Below-average glove at present, struggles with reads, poor decision-making, will throw behind runners
Arm 60 Plus throwing arm, accurate, good carry and line

A raw player right now, Aquino has present baseball skills and should improve, but will be a slow burn. There is some volatility given his profile, long swing, and developing pitch recognition skills.
