2017

2016

There are few hitters in the minor leagues with Tapiaís combination of success and detractors. His impressive minor league statistics are just a small part of the story with this enigmatic outfield prospect. Tapia, who turns 22 in February, stands 6-foot-2, and unfortunately his listed weight of 160 pounds appears accurate. In addition to his slight frame, Tapiaís unusual batting stance -- his elbows threaten to get lower than his knees -- gives many scouts pause when projecting Tapia as a future big league regular. Those who like Tapia tend to really like him, particularly his ability to regularly square the ball up. He has hit over .300 and slugged over .450 at every stop over the last three years, and offers plus speed to boot. If his unique aesthetics works at the highest level, a la Hunter Pence or Jose Altuve, the offensive ceiling will be a mile high. If he fails, this will serve as a cautionary tale for those who scout the box score.

2015

The Rockies arenít short on intriguing outfield talent at any level of their system, but Tapiaís stock may have risen more than any of the organizationís prospects last season. After getting off to an inauspicious start with a .244 batting mark after April, Tapia set Low-A Asheville ablaze from thereon, finishing with a .326 average while swiping 33 bases. Despite his non-traditional batting mechanics, Tapia has drawn raves for his contact skills and management of the strike zone, while his speed tool and ability to play all three outfield spots are other attributes that will aid his climb to through the minors. The jury is still out on whether or not Tapia can hit for enough power to become an everyday corner outfielder, but at 6-foot-2 and a slight 160 pounds, thereís still plenty of room for him to add some bulk. The 21-year-old will spend most of the upcoming season at High-A Modesto, with an eye on arriving in the big leagues by late 2015 or 2016.
