Hit 50 Noisy swing, mild leg kick; frequently early to front side, doesn't fully engage lower half at present; above-average bat speed, swing path has leverage, moderate barrel control; consistent quality contact, stays in the zone
Power 50 55 raw, average in-game; leverage, quality extension, loud contact, power to the pull side
Baserunning/Speed 45 4.33, average base-running skills 1st to 3rd
Glove 50 Utility in all three spots, body and speed play more to the corner spots; moves well, efficient reads and routes

Gotta has all the tools to project into a Major League regular, with an athletic body and well-rounded skills. He shows offensive aptitude, with consistent loud contact and some demonstrated on-base ability. Noisy hitting mechanics may get exploited at next levels, average regular potential if the hit tool holds up.
