Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 Hits from an open stance, leg kick to slightly closed off for timing. Plus bat speed, with quick hands that explode through the zone. Wrists can be stiff and lack rhythm at times. Struggled with bat control. Doesn't really control the zone, and struggles with pitches on the inner half. Does most damage with pitches on the outer half. Aggressive approach that can be exploited. Struggled picking up spin and has had high strikeout rates thus far. See as a below-average hitter.
Power 50 Above-average raw power. Has quality bat speed to take balls out from pull-side to the other side, and makes loud contact. Will play as average in game due to aggression and struggles with barrel control.
Baserunning/Speed 50 Average runner. 4.31-4.35 home-to-first. Gets to top speed fairly quick. Isn't a burner, but can take the extra base when presented.
Glove 50 Makes all the routine plays in the outfield. Speed plays better in the grass than on the bases. He gets to cutoff balls quick and showed average instincts. Should be an average defender in LF that can spell others in CF/RF.
Arm 40 Below-average arm strength. Lacks carry on throws. Can get rid of ball quick and throws were accurate, but only profiles in LF on a daily basis.

See as a bench/platoon player. Impressive bat speed and power, has swing-and-miss and pitch recognition issues. Missed 2018 season with a torn right labrum. Can play all three OF spots but profiles best in left. High risk with moderate interest.
