Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 30 Hits from a tall, even stance; leg kick; muscular swing; hand hitch; primarily a pull hitter; has pulled over 48 percent of balls in play for the season; lacks recognition of spin; above-average bat speed; needs to improve approach; leaks; easily beaten by pitches on the inner half.
Power 40 Above-average raw power; has big strength and can put a charge into a baseball when connects; plays to below average given lack of pitch recognition as well as hit tool.
Baserunning/Speed 50 Average runner; good second gear; impressive given size; 4.33 H-1B.
Glove 45 Have seen in both corner spots; struggles with reads and routes off the bat; has some speed to make up for it; takes poor routes on groundballs;
Arm 60 Plus throwing arm; plays at all three spots; quick arm; needs to improve overall accuracy; throws straight to the base.

A product of the Phillies prior regime, Sandberg is a quality athlete, but those athletic tools haven't manifested themselves fully onto the field as he struggles at the plate. This is his first time at the level and might repeat next year. See more as an organizational OF.
