Smaller frame and body. Can add some physical mass to body, but is unlikely to be a highly physical player. Will always be on the lean side.

Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 70 Only saw hit from left side in games, but took BP from both sides. From both sides, hits from an even stance with a small lift for timing. Quality bat control, and knows the zone and works the whole field with plus bat speed. Not a slap hitter, as he can drive the ball in the gap as well. Ambush approach, see ball hit ball, and can be overly aggressive at times, but there is a lot to like. See as a plus-plus hitter.
Power 30 Below-average raw power. Has strength in hands/wrists but won't be known for over the fence power, more for doubles and triples power.
Baserunning/Speed 70 Plus-plus runner, 4.05 from the left side. Accelerates quick, gets to top speed quick. Plus baserunner that forces infielders to work quick and make them uncomfortable.
Glove 50 See as a primary 2B, but could also get time in the grass given elite speed. Hands are fringe but makes all the plays around him, with plus-plus range, a quick first step, and instincts. Could fill in at SS but wouldn't be ideal given lack of accuracy and hands.
Arm 55 Above-average arm strength, can play anywhere on the dirt/grass. Would be a weapon at 2B. Struggled with accuracy in viewing, throws often sailed high.

See as a plus ML starter. Potential 7 hit tool, plus-plus speed as well, a leadoff type hitter. Moderate risk given inconsistency of defense in the dirt, but still has value even if he moves to the grass. Strong interest.
