2020 High 55 No
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 55 Hits from an open stance with high hands, small, quiet load with lower half and hands, can get long with trigger but has above-average bat speed to catch up to quality fastballs. Aggressive early in count, but can also work pitchers when they are working away from him. Strong pull hitter, shift candidate but has hit well regardless of it. Solid line drive strokes, see as a future above-average hitter.
Power 55 Plus raw power, has above-average bat speed and strength to take a ball out from right field to left-center, strong in wrists/hands. Can get power happy and pull happy which causes the grade to slide down slightly, but still see it as a future above-average tool.
Baserunning/Speed 50 Average runner down the line, surprising given size, could lose a step as he further matures, but accelerates quickly and is a threat to take a base against slower batteries.
Glove 55 Have seen in center and right field, can play center field given running ability and quality of reads and routes. Good agility to get to balls quickly and arm strength can force baserunners to hold at bases. Average in center field above-average in corners.
Arm 60 Plus arm strength, weapon in the outfield, throws have quality line and carry can play at all three spots.

See as an above-average regular in a corner outfield spot, 21 y/o L/R outfield, potential five-tool contributor with above-average hit/defense/power and a plus arm, strong interest, would acquire.
