Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Hits from a tall stance, small stride and load with average bat speed but above-average hands and trigger, smooth one-plane swing, not a lot of effort, works all fields. While over the fence power only plays pullside, can work the gaps for doubles. Patient at the plate, will work pitchers but is suspect against early in the count against off speed. Can have spells of weak contact, but makes enough contact ability to project as an average hitter.
Power 30 Below-average raw power, lacks strength in body, swing is more of the line drive variety, not over the fence power. Can really only take a ball out pullside, power will be more of the doubles and triples variety.
Baserunning/Speed 60 Plus runner, 4.11-4.19 home-to-first, gets up to speed quick, gets good jumps and reads pitchers well, plus baserunner.
Glove 55 Have seen play all three outfield spots, takes good reads and routes to the ball and covers a lot of ground, quality first step which helps range play above his run speed, future above-average defender in all three spots.
Arm 45 Fringe-average arm, not a weapon, gets to cutoff men quick but isn't a threat from the outfield.

See as a glove-first regular in center field. 23 y/o L/R outfielder, average hit, above-average run/field, well-below-average raw pop and a fringe arm that could limit him to LF in the long run, moderate interest.
