Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 Hits from an even stance; below average bat speed; good hands; knack for making contact; quality hand-eye coordination; plus eye; recognizes pitches well; works counts and waits for a pitch.
Power 30 Well below-average power; has bat speed and can put a charge into one but over the fence power isn't part of his game; primarily 2B's power.
Baserunning/Speed 60 Plus runner; has good second gear; 4.12 to 1B.
Glove 50 Can play all three OF spots and gets fair jumps and reads; nothing stands out defensively.
Arm 50 Average arm all around; has not been tested that often in game; gets to cutoff men quickly and accurately.

Scrappy, grinder, versatile player. Was old for High-A now but is performing well and was sent back to Double-A. Has organizational value but also has emergency value to a club to fill a short-term need.
