Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 45 Conine utilizes an open stance with hands held high and explodes through the zone with above average bat speed. Strikeouts will always be part of his game but are elevated due to his aggressive approach and current lack of pitch recognition. The ability to see spin will improve as he matures and is exposed to more secondaries.
Power 60 Physically strong with plus bat speed and natural loft to the swing make for plus power. It plays well in game to all fields as he knows how to attack fastballs in hitters counts and punish mistakes.
Baserunning/Speed 40 Current average foot speed (4.18 home-to-first clock) but will play below-average as he ages. Will not be a base clogger but speed is not part of his game.
Glove 50 Below-average range due to lack of foot speed but possesses solid instincts and takes a good first step. Conine will not be spectacular in the field but will not be a liability.
Arm 60 Strong arm, throws are accurate and show good carry. Big enough arm to handle any outfield spot but grades out as plus even for right field.

Drafted in the second round out of Duke in 2018, Conine has the tools and pedigree to be a solid everyday corner outfielder. The approach at the plate needs to become more disciplined but the power will play at the highest level. Profiles as a solid everyday right fielder.
