Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Hits from a slightly crouched, even stance, average bat speed, hands are low at set, so can be suspect against pitches up. Tendency to cut himself off in swing, can get over-aggressive at times and swing at early pitches in the count. Made hard contact in viewing, lacked discipline and can doesn't work many counts, future average hitter.
Power 30 Below-average raw power, lacks strength in frame as well as wrists/hands, can take a ball out pullside but most power will be of the extra-base variety.
Baserunning/Speed 55 Above-average runner, consistent 4.25 down the line, have not seen steal a base, gets up to speed quickly and runs the bases well.
Glove 60 Quality defender at short. Quick reactions and instincts at the position, gets self into position with quality footwork and soft hands, works well on the backhand, seen in one game in outfield, did not look comfortable and had not appeared at position in minors.
Arm 60 Plus throwing arm, strong arc and line on throws, has arm strength to play other positions if needed.

See as an everyday glove-first regular at shortstop, 22 y/o R/R, plus defender that can make all the plays and can appear at other positions if needed. Bat won't ever be known for power but project as an average hitter, moderate interest, would acquire.
