Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 Straight up stance; elbow in; bat flat w/ a little waggle; minimal load; moderate leg kick; average bat speed; swing has mild leverage.
Power 40 Raw power but hasn't played in game; swing looks line-drive with some lift
Baserunning/Speed 40 Not a runner; best time of 4.40; is not a basestealing threat.
Glove 50 Below-average at present, could get to average with position move to first; struggles with reads off the bat; not his true position, playing 3B for at-bats right now; projects as 1B where he should be average.
Arm 60 Arm is above average being a former catcher; above-average velocity on throws.

Looks to be a long term project. Lacks a true position, but seems destined for first base.
