Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 Upright, slightly open stance w/good rhythm. Plus bat speed & swings w/intent, but it comes w/a ton of swing/miss. He'll show flashes of pitch recognition & strike zone awareness; punishing mistake spin & fastballs over the plate but also struggling w/premium stuff in-zone & frequently expanding. There's fairly significant variance in hit tool outcomes, w/the most likely being a .230-.240 bat.
Power 60 Easy plus raw power w/the ability to leave the yard to any part of the park. 25-30 HR potential, though hit tool may limit playability.
Baserunning/Speed 50 Average runner, consistent 4.25-4.35 times down the line.
Glove 50 Lacks the speed/instincts to profile in CF, but skillset plays as average in RF.
Arm 60 Plus arm strength, true RF fit.

High-risk, high-reward profile, but the hit tool/approach likely limit Canario to more of a low-end regular role.
