2023 Very High 50 No
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Slightly open stance with the hands starting low and close to the chest, mild load with a short stride; Aggressive approach, will expand the zone but has above average bat to ball skills to hit bad pitches; Gets off balance against spin, needs to improve pitch recognition.
Power 60 Plus raw generated from strong frame and a swing path that generates loft, power to all fields, bat speed is just average but strong enough to put it out anywhere.
Baserunning/Speed 40 Currently average raw foot speed, 4.30 home to first clock on a dig; will play below average with physical maturity.
Glove 30 Average hands but lack of quickness and mobility severely limit his range; A liability defensively and will be limited to first base or designated hitter.
Arm 50 Above-average arm strength, accurate throws; Heavy feet and poor body control slow down throws across the diamond.

A member of Cleveland's 2017 International class, Noel's bat has improved during his time stateside and has the potential to be just as powerful as the other, more heralded, signees of that group. The limitations of the glove put a ton of pressure on his offensive game, especially being a right handed, but if it all clicks there's a ceiling of a middle of the order basher.
