Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Controls the zone well. Not a huge swing for a power hitter, uppercut but stays through the zone, quiet load, high hands, wide stance, finds barrel, pull heavy, line drive. Hunts fastball, needs work on off speed pitches.
Power 55 His brute strength and physicality make power his calling card. Uses legs well, able to extend arms, high exit velocity.
Baserunning/Speed 40 XXL frame makes him a below-average runner.
Glove 50 Moves well around the bag, smooth, loose and fluid, soft hands, confident at scooping throws in dirt.
Arm 55 A plus arm that will play up at 1B, carry, accurate. Three-quarter arm angle works well at 1B.

Playing plus defense at first base and his power at the plate gives Sheets a fairly high floor. Adding his control of the zone and possibility to have a high OBP regularly. Package makes him an enticing young power hitter.
