Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 Upright, slightly open, balanced stance with a leg kick; Decent barrel control but can be susceptible to velocity inside; recognizes same side spin well, makes loud contact;
Power 50 Above average raw to all fields generated by strength and bat speed, swing is geared more for line drives, plays down due to hit tool;
Baserunning/Speed 60 Multiple sub 4.2 home to first clocks from the left side, excellent second gear; runs the bases well and will have some stolen base potential.
Glove 60 Raw foot speed allows for plenty of range in the outfield, tracks well and takes efficient routes.
Arm 50 Has enough arm strength to play anywhere in the outfield; Throws are accurate and show good carry; would play above average in center or left but average in right.

Athletic player that possesses size and speed but below average hit tool will limit his ceiling; will struggle with contact against more advanced pitching; Raw power is above average but will play down due to hit tool deficiencies; Speed and defense will allow him to find his way onto a future major league roster.
