Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 30 Hits from an even, upright stance, average bat speed, flat, contact-oriented swing, line-drive stroke, will look to bunt early; swing lacks strength, lots of weak contact in looks, struggles to recognize off-speed; will work counts, falls behind often, pitchers attack aggressively, well below-average hitter
Power 30 Well-below average raw, lacks bat speed and loft, can turn on one, but will more likely play in form of extra-base hits
Baserunning/Speed 50 Average runner down the line, 4.23 H-1B
Glove 55 Average to above-average fielder, arm allows him to make plays on left side, quick hands that allow for a quality transfer, tools to play at any infield spot
Arm 60 Plus arm, real weapon in the field, throws have quality line and carry, very accurate
Overall

Upper-level utility player with defensive chops to play anywhere on the dirt, could see some emergency time on account of quality defense. Interesting ORG piece.
