Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 60 Starts from a slightly open, upright stance with hands near the shoulders; Mild load and leg kick, stays balanced, plus bat speed and level swing keeps the barrel in the zone for a long time, has the ability to hit the ball hard to all fields, recognizes spin well.
Power 50 Current doubles power, swing path will limit the home run totals but the bat speed and plus approach will lead to 15-20 HR in the future.
Baserunning/Speed 45 Currently average raw speed (4.23 home to first clock), will play slightly below with physical maturity; not quick out of the box, will not be a base stealing threat but also not a base clogger.
Glove 50 Has played all three outfield positions but best suited for left, currently lacks instincts and often takes inefficient routes, continued experience will get him to average in left.
Arm 45 Fringe average raw arm strength, accurate but lacks strong carry, will play average in left slightly below elsewhere.

Signed out of Venezuela for $400,000 in 2018, Pinango's future major league utility lies solely with the hit tool. It's a tough profile, non-slugging corner outfielder, but the bat is strong enough to carry it to an average starter role.
