Prospect Spotlight

Brujan put himself on the map with an excellent full-season debut in 2018, slashing a combined .320/.403/.459 across two A-Ball levels and stealing 55 bases. He’s a speedy switch-hitter with plus barrel-feel and sneaky pop when hitting left-handed. Brujan shows an advanced plan at the plate, knowing when to be aggressive and when to take a pitch. His strikeout rates have hovered around 12-percent as a pro, and his ability to put the ball in play is more significant given 70-grade wheels.

Defensively, Brujan is limited to 2B where his athleticism allows him to make routine plays. A below-average arm hurts him less on the right side of the infield; he projects to stay there long-term, though his speed could translate to the outfield if need be. Brujan has the speed and contact skills for an above-average regular’s ceiling despite not hitting for much power or playing a true premium position.
