Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 Upright, slightly open stance. Simple swing w/ little wasted movement. Primarily a fastball hitter who struggles w/ spin both in & out of the zone. Began the season w/ more of a contact-oriented approach but has shifted gears in an attempt to get to more power in-game. .240 bat w/ the current approach.
Power 50 Solid-average raw power, getting to most of it to the pull side. 20 HR potential.
Baserunning/Speed 40 Surprising speed/athleticism, but the rigors of catching will likely wear him down. Runs the bases well.
Glove 50 Versatile defender w/ the ability to turn in playable, if not average, defense at 2B/3B/RF/LF, but the real value stems from his ability to catch. Athletic behind the dish w/ good mobility. Average receiving ability, though the hands can get noisy when reaching across his body. Overall package is enough for part-time catching duties.
Arm 50 Quick release, accurate w/ throws on the bag.

Intriguing overall skillset without one true carrying tool but the ability to play 4-5 times per week as a super utility type, vaguely similar to that of Austin Barnes.
