Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 Upright, even stance, leg lift, loose hands; below-average bat speed, shows some barrel control; commands the zone, sees pitches well, works the whole field; knack for making contact, tough out
Power 40 Below-average raw, has strength that can translate to some pull-side pop; doubles more than over-the-fence power, tool should play to full utility at maturity
Baserunning/Speed 40 Below-average runner; 4.34 home-to-first, heavy feet, not a base-stealing threat
Glove 50 Gets quality jumps, clean routes to the ball; polished defender, lacks range to run down balls in the gaps, sure on balls he can reach
Arm 40 Below-average arm strength, accurate, hits cutoff men quickly, lacks carry to cut down runners

Zehner has a fairly fringy tool set across the board, but he's a gamer with a knack for contact and good instincts. He could see some emergency action for a club down the road, but otherwise projects as a quality organizational player.
