Lean, projectable frame, 6-foot-1, 157-pounds.  Gates handled the bat well in BP with his barrel being in the zone early and working to the opposite field, he pounded an 86 mph exit velo off the tee.  The left-handed hitter has long levers, a tall stance with the bat flat over his back shoulder, he has a simple load back over his back foot with a small load back with his hands, he had a toe tap load as well as a low leg kick during BP, his back knee triggers the start of his swing but he does not use much lower half, instead he uses his upper body strength and quickness in his hands to deliver the barrel.  He posted 86 mph exit velo off the tee. He ran a 7.30 60-yard dash. From the outfield he takes small steps in his approach, has a short to long arm stroke, throws from slightly underneath the ball and topped out at 81 mph.

Gates has a strong, projectable frame at 6-foot-2, 157-pounds. The left-handed hitter starts from a tall stance with relaxed rhythm in his hands. Simple toe-tap load as he triggers his hands back, then strides out, landing easy, creating good separation. He has life in his hack with present strength and an exit velocity of 81 mph. Natural lift on an uphill plane, good barrel awareness, strong top hand, loose finish with line drive power and more to come in the future. In the outfield, Gates has still-developing footwork and throws from a ¾ slot with a long arm stroke at 78 mph.
