MLB ETA Risk Factor OFP Realistic Role Video
2017 High 45 4th OF or DH, power bench bat Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 45 big leg lift, hands drift with bat wrap to start swing; long bat path with above AVG bat speed; loses momentum in lower half once front foot plants; free swinging approach, though will extend counts and work walks; lots of swing-miss; pulls balls on ground, all fields approach in air
Power 55 plus-plus raw power with ability to drive to all fields; easy power in BP; swing generates loft; when squared up, drives the ball to all fields; consistency making contact will determine ability to tap into raw
Baserunning/Speed 30 lumbering gait; history of 20+ steal seasons a bit misleading--picks spots well and is aggressive, but speed is not there to expect this at higher levels
Glove 40 struggles in OF with reads, finishing plays; range is decent given size; limited to corner role presently; has athleticism to stay in field, future move to first base could be beneficial
Arm 45 underwhelming, though serviceable; defensive struggles make it easier to challenge arm; lacks strength/accuracy for RF
Overall

Plus-plus raw power with tick below AVG hit tool. Former 2nd round pick has long bat path and tendency to swing-miss. However, also capable of barreling balls and making hard contact. Raw power is plus-plus with carry to all fields. Defensively, future first baseman. OF play can be rough. Arm and glove limiting to LF if remaining in OF. Has athleticism, but lacks gracefulness--very apparent on bases. Large build seems destined to slow down with age. If move to first base pushed glove to AVG, possible to see future as AVG regular with big power. Likely 4th OF or DH, power bench bat.
