MLB ETA Risk Factor OFP Realistic Role Video
2019 Moderate 45 40/Bench Utility Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 High leg kick, moderate load; noisy swing, front foot hitter, above-average bat speed; aggressive hitter, middle and pull approach
Power 40 Above-average bat speed, line drive power, raw
Baserunning/Speed 75 3.9 home-to-first; top-scale raw speed; improving stolen-base technique
Glove 45 Average range and mobility; former catcher, new to middle-infield, will benefit from time in field, fringe-average tools
Arm 50 Above-average arm strength; quick arm action with good carry

Long's game is raw across-the-board, but there is evident potential for development. Drafted as a catcher out of Jacksonville, Alabama, he is still learning how to play the infield. He projects as a fringe big-league infielder with valuable utility potential on account of his speed and some pop from the left side.
