Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Decent plate coverage at times, pitch recognition isn't bad, approach is fine. More swing and miss than ideal for an offensively-minded prospect at this level, especially on good spin down in and below the zone. Tends to roll over on pitches located down and away from him, and will need to cut down on ground balls if he is to make enough solid contact to allow the power to play.
Power 60 Huge bat speed paired with a lot of pure strength creates easy pop when he turns on a pitch. Plays to all fields; he'll hit a liner to left that would be a single for most and it will go for extra bases, or he'll hit a pop-up that carries to the warning track. Ball explodes off the bat when he barrels it up.
Baserunning/Speed 50 Decent runner, can crank it up a notch when necessary.
Glove 50 At present, defense is fine but not spectacular in center. Generally makes the play but it is somewhat rare to see him beat a ball to the spot. Move to a corner OF position a distinct possibility, and he should be above average there.
Arm 50 Arm is OK, shows carry but doesn't really pop. Probably best suited to left field but is passable in all OF spots.

Ideal likely outcome here is a power-driven corner OF who plays solid defense and hits enough homers to make up for some offensive inconsistencies. Ability to cover CF in a pinch will also be an asset.
