Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Hits from a wide base with average bat speed, can armbar out, but doesn't seem to affect him, quality contact ability, works the zones and knows what pitches he can drive. Does most damage on pitches on the outer half, lacks rhythm with hands but was always on time, works pitchers and has shown patience at times, see as a future average hitter.
Power 40 Below-average raw power, not so much an over the fence power threat, just average bat speed and doesn't look to carry the ball over the fence, gets fair share of extra base hits and that is where most of the power will play, below-average game.
Baserunning/Speed 50 Average runner, 4.28-4.35 home-to-first, deceptive speed given size, takes good reads on the bases and can take the extra base, quality reads and jumps off pitchers, above-average base runner.
Glove 50 Surprising defense in center field, has good first step and reactions without being a true burner, consistent reads and routes while being efficient, can play all three spots. Average in center, above-average in a corner outfield spot.
Arm 50 Average arm strength, gets the ball out quick, can play at all three outfield spots.

See as an average regular in a corner outfield spot, 23 y/o R/R outfielder, physical player with average hit/run/arm grades, can play center field at average as well, moderate interest.
