Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Hands start high, mild load and leg kick; average bat speed, mild leverage, some noise in swing, can get off balanced on secondary offerings, some inner third vulnerability to velocity.
Power 45 Mild leverage, average bat speed, 55 power to the pull side, game approach geared for line drives.
Baserunning/Speed 45 Average current speed, 4.25 average on multiple clocks from home to first base; high base running IQ, will take extra base; passive leads, not a base stealing threat; slight regression predicted as he ages.
Glove 50 Average defender, split time at both corner infield positions, average first step, moderate range, soft hands and fluid transfers.
Arm 50 Average arm strength, struggles at times with accuracy when on the move.

Part of the Cubs' 2013 international signing class, Galindo offers the potential to become a solid everyday corner infielder. He's shown bat to ball skills and his natural strength gives some pop. However, the game swing plays more towards line drives and limits his power potential. There are no standout tools like some of his 2013 counterparts, but it's a well rounded game with no glaring holes.
