HS OF projects to be corner OF w/ plus avg ability.  Close to mature mdm, athletic build w/ gd present strength.  Straight on, slight crouch w/ high hand location.  Shift of weight, load and stride.  Gd timing in BP doesn't translate to games yet.
SL Uppercut w/ avg bat speed.  Repeatable swing.  LD Oriented, projects to use all fields.  Avg raw power w/ below avg game power for corner OF.  Learning strike zone, tendency to expand for fastballs elevated.  Sees spin, will handle velo with reps.
Projects below avg runner w/ avg routes and jumps.  Above avg arm w/ fringy accuracy.  Profiles as avg defensive OF in either corner.
Instinctive players gets most out of tools.  Quality baserunner will take the extra base.  Will lose tick of speed as matures, still have ability to steal 10 bags on instincts.
Intriguing lefty stick w/ the development of power determining ultimate role (starter or 4th OF).  Concerns L on L.
