RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Signed out of Mexico in late 2013, Urias has been an above-average hitter at every stop as a professional, but 2016 served as his coming out party. He was the youngest player in the California League, but was arguably the league's best hitter despite not turning 19 until June 3. Urias is on the right track to be an above-average contributor in the power department, showing excellent barrel control and the ability to drive the ball to all fields. It's very difficult to find past players who match his age, position and level, but consider that Rougned Odor, who is also similar to Urias from a physical standpoint, hit five home runs as a 19-year-old at High-A in 2013. The key here is the age, the hit tool and the approach, all of which are huge marks in his favor. If he handles Double-A the same way he handled High-A, he'll be in the big leagues before his 21st birthday.
