Strong frame, tall, long levers with a little more strength left to be added. Better athlete than you would assume given his size, with above average speed. Toned lower half, strong back/shoulders. Nearly ready-made body as a professional. Capable of playing the outfield.

Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Sees the ball very well and attacks the ball in all parts of the zone. Comfortable letting the ball travel and taking the pitch to all fields. While mostly a power swing, makes plenty of contact when he stays centered and backside doesn't fire early. He could sacrifice some power for more hits, but the swing is taylor-made for a power hitter.
Power 70 Using a contemporary approach, Misner uses a lofty swing to get the ball in the air to maximize damage with a thunderous stroke. He is an extra-base machine with future double-plus home run potential, especially if he chooses to become a "three true outcome"-type.
Baserunning/Speed 50 At present, closer to a 60 runner, but expect he may lose a step if he moves to a corner spot defensively.
Glove 50 Played mostly first base during the series, although has played some outfield. His big body presents as an excellent target at first base and he does have above-average athleticism for the position. Might be above-average defender at first base and slightly below-average in the outfield when all is said and done, but could provide some positional flexibility.
Arm 0 Never saw the arm put to the test during the look.

During the current fly-ball revolution, Misner is perfectly suited as a left-handed slugger for teams preaching launch angle and exit velocity. His future position is of secondary concern because the bat is what will get him to the big leagues, but he should be capable wherever he is slotted on the diamond.
