Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 70 Upright, slightly open, balanced stance; Simple load with toe tap for timing, classic left-handed swing. Plus bat speed allows the bat to stay in the zone; Elite barrel control with an excellent feel for the strike zone and pitch recognition, will rarely chase bad pitches.
Power 50 Plus raw power generated by bat speed; Hits the ball hard to all fields but swing is geared more for contact, producing plenty of doubles; Will produce average home run numbers with physical maturity.
Baserunning/Speed 60 Smooth, athletic runner; 4.10 clock home to first; Average acceleration but has a second gear once he gets going; Physical build will allow him to keep speed for most of his career; smart baserunner who will steal a moderate amount of bags.
Glove 60 Improving routes and instincts in the outfield, has the raw foot speed to cover plenty of territory, will eventually settle into being an above-average centerfielder.
Arm 50 Average arm strength, accurate; Fine for center and left but would be stretched in right.

One of the top young hitters in the game. His ability to find the barrel plus the speed and defense give him a high floor of a solid everyday major league outfielder. Continued development and physical growth will result in an occasional All-Star who contends for batting titles.
