Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 60 Above-average bat speed w/ plus bat control. Patient, almost passive approach at times, but has an advanced feel for the strike zone w/ little chase & the ability to both recognize & react to spin. The last step will be continuing to hone in on his approach within the zone & singling out pitches he can drive into the gaps, but the framework is there for a .270-.280 bat.
Power 50 Primarily gap-gap power at present, but the hit tool/approach in addition to physical maturity should lead to 15-20 HR power.
Baserunning/Speed 50 Solid-average runner w/ good instincts on the bases.
Glove 50 Average overall package in CF. His routes are fine, but the reads/jumps are inconsistent & he lacks the pure speed to make up for it. He also has a tendency to coast towards the ball & gets too nonchalant at times. Real shot to stick in CF, but further development is required & will likely slide to a corner in deference to a stronger defender on a championship caliber team.
Arm 50 Average strength & accuracy. Works in CF, but might limit him to LF if he is forced to move to a corner.

Above-average regular w/ a hit tool-driven profile. Occasional all-star type if he's able to stick in CF.
