Overall Summary
Arroyo's calling card is his hit tool, and it profiles to be above-average at maturity. He displays plus bat speed and feel for the barrel at a young age despite an approach that can get overly aggressive at times. Arroyo's defensive profile works better at third base, where his foot speed won't be as much of a hinderance; instincts and quickness will be more of an asset. Has the arm to man the hot corner and while it's not an ideal offensive profile at third, his bat will warrant starting time there. Has the quickness to play at second from time to time, making him a valuable utility player.
