Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 Mildly open stance, small leg kick for timing, average bat speed; small hand loop during load, longer swing path, mild plane, trouble catching up to premium velocity, quality extension from long arms; lacks pitch recognition skills
Power 45 Above-average raw, natural strength, some loft with an uphill stroke, plays down due to hit tool
Baserunning/Speed 40 Below-average runner, 4.38 home-to-first, not a base-running threat
Glove 50 One game at first base, three at DH in looks; makes routine plays, moderate agility moves around bag
Arm 50 Took infield at third, arm fair for the position, average line and carry, plenty for first

A former third-rounder, Green has slowly moved up the ladder, repeating in the FSL after missing most of last season with injuries. He has some strength but needs to improve his contact ability to have a role greater than a bat off the bench. Lack fo game power creates a tough profile at first base, so he will need to show some versatility to move up the chain.
