Johneshwy Fargas | CF, 18 yo, 6-1, 165, BR, TR | 2013 Draft – 11 | (AZL) 30 G, 90 PA, .299/.393/.351, .744 OPS, 0 HR, 2 RBI, 8 SB, 3 CS, 9 BB, 11 K
One of the top Puerto Rican high school prospects in this year’s draft. Offers top of the charts speed, above average range in CF, and a cannon for an arm. He even showed some nice plate discipline in a small sample in rookie ball. I’d look for him in short-season again next summer, but I’ve also seen some speculation that the Giants might like him enough to move him all the way to Augusta. Arroyo and Jones will get most of the hype from the 2013 class, but watch out for this kid as well.
They said it: “He is still fairly raw, but his tools make him an exciting projectable outfielder…plays with lots of enthusiasm in all aspects of his game…Fargas is aggressive and has good instincts on the bases. With time, he could develop into a basestealing threat.” ~ MLB.com
