RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Reymond Fuentes.
Fuentes was one of the prospects surrendered by the Red Sox in the Adrian Gonzalez deal and from a skills standpoint, he is first rate. With plus-plus speed, the 21-year-old has swiped 83 bases over the last two seasons in the minors and has done so with amazing efficiency -- an 82.2 percent success rate. His plate discipline is improving but could use some more work as he still strikes out a little too often and a .342 OBP in 2011 was a career high. He'll likely begin the season in Double-A this year and should definitely be on your radar in keeper and dynasty leagues.
Fuentes did nothing to dampen the promise he shows as a base stealer or defender in 2010, but he did little to improve his on-base rate (25 walks in 400 plate appearances). He's young and has time to develop a better approach at the plate, but that will be happening in the San Diego organization following his inclusion in the Red Sox's deal to land Adrian Gonzalez. All things consider, Fuentes is likely three years away from contributing at the major league level.
Fuentes, 18, is a speedy center-field prospect drafted in the first round of the 2009 draft by the Red Sox. He signed quickly and played in 40 games for the organization's Rookie-Level club in the Gulf Coast League, where he showcased his plus speed and good defensive skills. He doesn't have a lot of power, but is a gap hitter with line drive power and he makes excellent contact. Plate discipline is the major element lacking in his game, but he's with an organization that subscribes to that philosophy and will teach him more patience.
