Prospect Spotlight

Although Arozanera didn’t record a hit in the game, he showed a quick, live bat with a loose swing and the ability to barrel-up balls with solid bat control on a swing path that stays in the zone for an extended period. He participated in the short-lived home run derby (cancelled after first round due to rain) and in those swings, he showed a flatter path more oriented for line drives than loft, and he’s hitting the gaps plenty this season, with 24 extra-base hits along with his eight home runs. In right field, he shows an average arm and fielding actions, with good reads and reactions, and his speed plays up in the outfield, where his athletic strides give him plus running ability once underway.

There’s still some projection in the body, and over the course of time he should gain more strength and leverage to his swing that could develop into average power at maturity, but it may not reach the power production typical of a Role 50, regular right fielder in the big leagues. A Role 45, second-division regular profile is more realistic.
