Maxed out large frame, needs to watch out before he adds too much bad weight. Small concern for an 18 year old. A lot of the weight is in his bulky thighs.

Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 55 Long stride, strong forearms through the entire zone. Solid pitch recognition, layed off breaking stuff in the dirt well. Good feel for the zone, even against premium velo.
Power 60 Solid bat speed, body is a little tight, so that might limit all of the raw power from playing in game. More of a line drive approach at the moment.
Baserunning/Speed 45 Already below average, concerning for an 18-year-old. It's a big frame with a chance to get slower.
Glove 50 Not challenged much, average range with a chance to go below average. Definite right fielder.
Arm 55 Above average with decent carries on throws and accuracy. Good footwork for someone of his size.

It's a right field profile. He has the arm and power upside for it. The excitement here is the hit/power combo, where both are on their way to being above average. The approach and pitch recognition are advanced for an 18-year-old. He mashed in a small sample of High-A.
