Dorssys Paulino: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Paulino had some growing pains at Low-A Lake County but that's to be expected from an 18-year-old in the Midwest League. He hit just .246 with 91 strikeouts in 523 plate appearances, but managed to rack up 28 doubles and showed improvement as the season wore on. Francisco Lindor gets most of the ink in write-ups about the Indians' prospects, but Paulino's bat may actually wind up becoming a more useful tool. If he remains in the Cleveland organization long term, a move to second or third base seems likely, since Lindor is the superior defender at the premium position, but until the duo share the field together, Paulino is likely to remain at shortstop as he ascends the Indians' system.
