Physical Description: Average, muscular frame. Solid athlete. Minimal remaining projection. Strong lower half.

Hit: Starts crouched and open with his hands low, down by his chest. Average bat speed. Short, contact-oriented swing. Doesn’t swing and miss much, puts the ball in play. Understands the strike zone, has a knack for getting on base.

Power: Well-below average raw power. Minimal in-game power. Not a major part of his game. May run into a home run or two to the pull side, but swing not tailored for over-the-fence power. 

Arm: Below-average arm strength.

Field: Above-average defensive center fielder. Covers a lot of ground. Has greatly improved defense since joining the organization. Can also play second base in a pinch.

Run: Slightly above-average speed. Runs hard, gets out of the box quick.

Summation: Projects as a depth player. Type of player that could fill a hole at any level from Low A to Triple-A. Lacks any stand-out tool, but will provide consistent performance and professional at-bats.
