2014 Top 40 Season in Review

Physical Description: Athletic, lean, small frame. Room for added strength gains.  

Hit: Contact hitter’s profile with quick hands and solid hand-eye coordination. Open stance. Does a good job staying back. Still developing an approach and gets caught too often out in front of secondary offerings. Does make a lot of contact, but has a tendency to make weak contact against pitches that it be better to lay off. Solid separation in his swing and average-to-better bat speed. Fringe-average potential, but could be more if he refines approach as he matures.  

Power: Limited power at present. Will not be a big part of his game in the future. Even with added strength, well below-average power potential.  

Arm: Plus arm strength. Has shown on multiple occasions the arm strength to make the throw from the hole both from a set position and using a jump.  

Field: Fluid actions and has solid range in both directions. Confident coming in on the ball and shows soft hands. Footwork and posture can get sloppy but has made huge strides of improvement.  

Run: Plus speed. Learning to read pitchers and utilize speed. Currently lacks the instincts/feel for stealing bases at a high success rate. Can score from second and go first to third with ease.  

Career notes: A native of Honduras, he moved to California to live with the family of the coach of a U.S. team that traveled to his country to pursue a baseball career. Would be the first native of Honduras to make the major leagues. Surprised some when he pushed former Dominican bonus baby Raymel Flores to second base when both were on the Lowell roster.  

Summation: Potential utility type at the big league level. Athletic with speed and defensive tools at a young age. Projects to be a contact hitter whose carrying tools will be his defense, arm, and speed. Still young, with long way to go developmentally. Defensive tools play at any infield position except first base. Could also likely handle the outfield if need be to increase versatility.
