Extreme 30 Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 20 Big, powerful, quick leg kick, aggressive, long load, takes a long time to get to trigger point, deep coil, doesn't control the bat at launch, stiff; very long swing path, average bat speed; huge leverage, barrel's not on plane long; hyper-aggressive approach early, huge cuts, obscene swing-and-miss, lots of weak rollover contact; shows some semblance of ability to tone it down and lay off two-strike chasers; would need significant approach improvement and mechanical overhaul to peak at a future 30.
Power 50 80 raw, absolutely titanic shots in BP, took one 440 in-game, multiple triple-digit exit velos; enough to run into a bunch of homers, hit tool dramatically limits game utility.
Baserunning/Speed 20 4.57 DP dig, 4.64 average on five clocks; clogger, body's not going to gain any steps, terrifying freight train coming at you if you're on the hot corner and he's going first to third.
Glove 30 Borderline true 20 defender; lumbering movements, very poor mobility to the ground, well below-average range, hard hands, stiff fielding actions; has dropped multiple routine putouts, pick-off throws, will pull himself off the bag trying to stretch for balls. Benefit of the doubt that enough repetition can play himself into 30 range.
Arm 50 Looks to have pretty good raw velocity, really babies the ball to second, too fine on feeds to the pitcher, poor accuracy.

Very large human with top-of-the-scale raw power but a very limited profile even if a good bit of it plays. Throwback player, unhinged violence in swing and moon-shot launch angles make for fun BP sessions, but probable org depth.
