Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 55 Above-average bat speed allows him to get to velocity and square up pitches in his kitchen, despite a slight mechanical hitch in his load. Has shown the ability to flick certain types of pitches the opposite way but tends toward a pull-heavy approach not suited to his skillset. Rolls over too many pitches for easy grounders to the left side, but has improved his approach since last year and doesn't strike out nearly as frequently.
Power 45 Not a huge amount of over-the-fence pop, but has doubles and triples power to the pull-side especially. He has a quick bat which allows him to rip grounders down and line and liners into the gap, and his speed doesn't hurt when going for extra bases. Sometimes looks like he is selling out for every last drop of his power and it can hurt his approach.
Baserunning/Speed 70 Has plus speed and cuts the bases very well, meaning he almost always goes first-to-third on singles and first-to-home on extra-base hits. His opportunistic base-running translates to steals as well, and he is always a threat to swipe a bag.
Glove 60 Smooth, graceful play in the outfield. Covers a lot of ground and has good instincts. Always seems to make the play. True centerfielder.
Arm 50 Solid but not spectacular arm, good enough to handle center with his other abilities but left will his stronger corner spot.

His ceiling is that of a starting centerfielder but the more likely outcome is bench outfielder who will always be able to come in for defense and to run the bases. The profile carries risk on account of his young age and his great distance from the big leagues. He is ready for a new challenge, but it is possible the flaws in his approach at the plate will be exposed at the higher levels of the minors.
