2017

Typically when the word "projection" gets assigned as a positive attribute for a young prospect, a pitcher is being discussed. Gonzalez is the hitter equivalent. He turned 19 after the 2016 season and measures in at 6-foot-5, 190 pounds. The converted shortstop now looks the part of a wiry center fielder, but most evaluators expect him to add 30 or 40 pounds of muscle before he hits his prime. There are a couple more assumptions that go into this being an appealing profile in dynasty leagues. First, he is expected to offer at least plus power at maturity, assuming he fills out. Second, he will need to hit at some point. He posted a 69 wRC+ and 31 percent strikeout rate in the Pioneer League last year, so stat-line scouts will likely avoid him entirely. However, this is a high-pedigree international signee ($1.4 million bonus in 2014) who was learning a new position and is in his developmental infancy. This should be viewed as a chance to get in on the ground floor.
