Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 Even, tall stance, short hand path, fair hands, average bat speed; line-drive swing path, uses the whole field, power is primarily pull-side; shows an eye and some zone command, tends to get aggressive early in count
Power 30 Well below-average power, not a part of game; lacks loft in swing, pop he has will play at full utility with doubles, limited over-the-fence power
Baserunning/Speed 50 Average runner, good runner, speed plays better than size suggests
Glove 55 Average present fielder, quality footwork, soft hands, confidence on the backhand; surprising lateral range given size, strong first step, body control to execute difficult plays
Arm 60 Plus arm strength, quality throws with mustard, accuracy comes and goes, fairly consistent with mechanics

Simcox won't bring much to the plate, but he profiles well as a utility infielder capable of bringing strong defensive value all over the diamond.
