Arroyo, one of the Giants' top prospects, had a down year with Double-A Richmond in 2016. To be fair, the reduced production may be a byproduct of the poor hitting conditions in Richmond -- Arroyo had...

2017

2016

The 2013 first-rounder had his best season in the minors this past year, slashing .304/.344/.459 in 409 plate appearances with High-A San Jose. Arroyo who was drafted out of high school continues to steadily improve, adding power (which carried over to the Arizona Fall League) while maintaining a strikeout rate under 18 percent. He should make the jump to Double-A Richmond or even Triple-A Sacramento in 2016. With the Giants being set at shortstop and second base at the major league level, it may be tempting to downgrade Arroyo out of fear that he will be blocked when he is ready, but he is still too far for dynasty league owners to think like that. He lacks the superstar offensive ceiling of some of the more highly touted minor league shortstops, but there is value in a player with Arroyo's relatively high floor.

2014

The Giants selected Arroyo with the 25th pick of the 2013 draft and he went on to excel in the rookie league, winning the league MVP award to the tune of a .326/.388/.511 line in 209 plate appearances. The Giants received a bit of criticism for taking Arroyo a round or two before he was projected to go, but the team saw something in the 18-year-old that others did not. Despite his young age, Arroyo brings a mature approach to the plate; he doesn't try to do more than is asked of him, and that mindset has made him a difficult out in his early years. He has a level swing with gap power, but doesn't project to be a legitimate basestealer in the majors. Arroyo is still a few years away from sniffing the majors, but he is definitely a prospect to consider or at least track in dynasty leagues for 2014.
