Arroyo was the best prospect the Rays could get back in an Evan Longoria trade, even with Tampa Bay taking back Denard Span's dead money and covering some of the remaining dollars on Longoria's deal. That's not to say Arroyo doesn't bring anything to the table, it's just that Longoria's bad contract prevented the Rays from getting a fair talent-for-talent package. The 22-year-old infielder is best suited for second base or third base, even though his bat is a little light for both positions. He may have a plus hit tool, but he is a below-average runner and has below-average power. Arroyo was incredibly lucky at Triple-A (.427 BABIP) and similarly unlucky in the majors (.231 BABIP), so it's hard to read too much into his statistical lines at either stop. He appears poised to compete for the second base job in spring training, as the Rays have better internal options at shortstop and third base. Given his limited upside, he should go undrafted in most mixed leagues.

  2. Christian Arroyo 2017 Preseason Outlook
    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 a dramatic home and road splits (.224/.278/.294 at home compared to .315/.348/.438 on the road). The Giants continued to keep him primarily at shortstop despite the team's glaring need for a third baseman. Arroyo will likely transition more to third base in 2017 in order to prep for his eventual call to the majors. While Arroyo probably won't provide enough in the power department to warrant immediate fantasy consideration at third base, his contact skills alone could eventually thrust Arroyo into NL-only prominence.
  3. Christian Arroyo 2016 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  4. Christian Arroyo 2014 Preseason Outlook
    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.
