Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 60 Slightly open, upright stance, stays balanced, quiet pre-swing; above average bat speed that has some natural loft; Rare approach for a young hitter, shows excellent pitch recognition and rarely expands the zone, will attack when ahead and hit the ball with authority but also shows the ability to take outside pitches opposite field.
Power 70 Current plus raw power will increase to double plus with physical maturity; power generated by natural strength and plus bat speed; Hits to all fields, still learning how to make it play in-game but will be a future run producer.
Baserunning/Speed 40 Current average raw foot speed, 4.35 clock home to first, long strides; will play down to below average with physical maturity.
Glove 50 Average hands and range make him a adequate defender currently, not flashy but gets the job done; Has the tools to handle a move to 1B or LF if needed in the future.
Arm 50 Accurate arm with enough strength to handle the left side of the diamond.

Future impact bat that will anchor a lineup with his plus contact/power tools. His eventual landing spot defensively doesn't matter, the bat will carry the profile.
