Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 60 Slightly open, balanced stance with a mild load and stride; swing lacks loft, generates hard, line drives; Mitchell has a knack for contact and shows an excellent knowledge of the strike zone.
Power 40 Plus raw power plays below-average due to the way the swing is geared. Mitchell is strong enough and has plenty of bat speed to generate double digit home runs the way it is, but could produce 20-25 if the approach were to focus more on pop.
Baserunning/Speed 70 Moves exceptionally well for someone his size, quick out of the box and accelerates down the line; 3.97 home to first clock on a dig down the line; not a prolific base stealer but will swipe the occasional base, speed geared more for taking extra bases.
Glove 60 Athleticism allows him to cover plenty of ground in the outfield; Gets good reads and takes efficient routes; will be able to play an above average center field for the foreseeable future.
Arm 50 Makes accurate throws from the outfield, above average arm strength; Arm will play average in right field and slightly above in center.

An exceptional athlete, Mitchell has the tools to become a plus major league starting outfielder. The speed and defense give him a high floor but if he can tap into the power just a bit there's potential for an occasional All-Star.
