His fielding is not what stands out for him but in accordance to scouts he does have a strong arm and appears to be clean on protection. He’s not a significantly tall participant, but has a large body that assignments some electricity in the future and he’s also continue to 18, which suggests he can continue to undoubtedly expand.
The young infielder has a lot of a long time of enhancement left and he’s undoubtedly a person of the top rated prospective clients to keep an eye above the adhering to a long time. He is at the moment ranked as the Blue Jays 14th finest prospect and MLB Pipeline expects him to achieve the large leagues in 2021, which suggests he would be 20 a long time old when the period began.
No make any difference what, the young Dominican participant has a lot of a long time of enhancement ahead of him and if he does start to present what is predicted from him, specially from an offensive standpoint, the Blue Jays could have another star infield prospect on their palms along fellow infielders Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette, Kevin Smith, Jordan Groshans, Cavan Biggio, and Orelvis Martinez.
There’s undoubtedly a surplus of infielders who have equivalent properties, specifically Orelvis Martinez, Groshans and Vlad Jr. but thinking of they are continue to quite young some improvements in their position are hugely doable.
