Marrero working to bring selective approach from... (4.9.15)

Physical Description: Athletic, medium build. Physically mature.

Hit: Line-drive stroke, compact swing. Quick hands through the zone. Gap-to-gap approach. Solid knowledge of the strike zone. Will tend to pull off pitches and can get beat on the inner-third as he needs to work on keeping his hands inside the baseball. Swing can get choppy at times. Future fringe-average hit tool.

Power: Not part of his game. Future below-average power. Will hit the occasional home run off a mistake pitch.

Arm: Can make all the throws and deep in the hole at shortstop. Above-average arm strength.

Field: Plus defender. Extremely athletic. Not flashy, makes it look easy. As fundamentally sound as they come. Great body control and is able to throw from all angles and on the run. Active lower half with agility, quick lateral movements, and soft hands. Plus range and first-step quickness and reactions. Future gold glove potential.

Run: Average runner. Natural instincts. Can steal a base, but it won’t be a big part of his game.

Career Notes: Excellent freshman and sophomore seasons, but struggled his junior year at ASU which contributed to him falling to the Red Sox at 24. Played for the Team USA Collegiate team as a sophomore, leading the team in hits and RBIs.

Summation: Future regular. Everyday, solid contributor at premium position. Defense-first profile with elite defense and gold glove potential. Future hit tool should be able to hold above water with rest of league average at the position. Bat still developing and will need to prove ability to make adjustments at the Triple-A level. Sure-handed fielder at premium position that projects to hit at the bottom of a line-up.
