Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 60 Small leg kick, fairly straight with slight bend in knees, hands by shoulders, under control and in sync load, no bat wrap, swing stays through zone long time, level swing, stays balanced, plus barrel control, plus pitch selection, controls the zone extremely well, line-to-line approach, slightly above-average bat speed.
Power 40 Not strong enough to generate consistent over-the-fence power, contact hitter approach, level swing.
Baserunning/Speed 60 Runs like a deer, base stealing threat, easy speed, compact form, plus instincts, quick, agile, long strides
Glove 60 Plus range either way, smooth, under control, relaxed, fluid, soft hands, quick transfer, confident, plus instincts, jumps and reads.
Arm 55 Plays slightly above-average for short, velocity, accurate, quick release, small hitch at times.

Turang fits the mold of shortstops from years past with plus contact ability and speed but lacking power. However, that doesn't mean he won't be an everyday shortstop. Four plus tools in his belt give Turang a high floor and a chance to headline the next wave of Brewer prospects.
