Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 Slightly closed stance, wide base; below-average bat speed, strength over bat speed swing, uphill swing path, makes hard loud contact when he connects; long swing, slow trigger, decent balance; fair pitch recognition, struggles on inner half; looks to extend on pitches away
Power 50 Plus raw power; loud contact with strength to take the ball out to pull side and straight away; has loft on hit balls; plays down due to long swing and below-average hit utility
Baserunning/Speed 30 Well-below average runner; 4.54 home-to-first, not a base-stealer
Glove 50 Fair at first base, makes the routine plays; decent footwork around bag; lacks speed and arm for outfield, looks lost at times, first-base only, 30 on the grass
Arm 40 Below-average arm; lacks carry on throws, doesn't play anywhere other than first

McBroom is limited to first base, which limits his overall value given. His plus raw power plays at average in game, and he has some value as a weak-side platoon player. Mild interest.
