Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 60 Clean load with leg kick and weight shift, strong at touch down, slight bat wrap, quick bat, linear swing.

Will bunt, pro-at bats, good takes, battles with two strikes, goes the other way, quick wrists, comfortable with taking a base-on-balls, understands role as leadoff hitter, executes plan at plate.
Power 20 Approach is geared to line drives and slappy hits the other way, would need to be instructed to lift AND pull, there is some power potential as he has been able to barrel the other way well and relatively consistent, but it would still be well below average.
Baserunning/Speed 60 Alert on the basepaths, will steal, healthy leads, knows how to run bases, good acceleration, will peak at about 25-30 bags a season. Will slow slightly as he matures.

Home to first 4.01, 4.04.
Glove 55 Solid defender, makes the plays, athletic actions, aggressive to make play on fly balls, range is dependent on speed, playable instincts.
Arm 40 Hits cutoff, playable LF arm, fringe average, online with decent carry, good throwing mechanics, on target.

Leadoff hitter who gets on base with both his legs and eye, Kyle Barrett is an undersized competitor. His best tool is his speed and hit tool, with his arm and power coming below average and well below average, respectively. He looks to line the ball the other way with his better than average barrel control, settling with beating out grounders jail breaking to ~4.00 dig times. His defense is average, fielding what he gets to and taking good routes to balls. Barrett is a good organizational player.
