Prospect Spotlight

Signed for a paltry $60,000 in 2016 out of the Dominican Republic, Canario is a plus athlete with elite bat speed, giving him the power potential to be an impact major-leaguer in an OF corner or a true plus talent in center field if he can stick there. Canario has the speed for the position, but his routes were raw in my views of him playing right field, and he looked every bit the athletic but raw talent that he is. The rawness of the present profile carried over to the plate, with a hyper-aggressive fastball-hunting approach, but he makes loud, hard contact. I trust the physical tools, and I project Canario to both bang the gaps and take mistakes out of the yard.   Canario is beginning to fill into his 6’1” frame, and it will take patience to develop both offensively and defensively, but with reps and experience, he could become a premium center field prospect with plus power rounding out the profile.
