July 25, 2017
Ona, 20, is hitting .378 over his last 10 games for Low-A Fort Wayne.
ANALYSIS
The Cuban import is now hitting over .300 on the season, though he is still striking out a bit too much. Ona has 80 strikeouts in 79 contests. His power stroke remains a work in progress, but the Padres expect that in time the home runs will come as well. Ona remains a prospect to watch for San Diego.

Farm Futures: Midwest League Roundup
April 20, 2017
James Anderson stays in Low-A for the next stop on his tour of the minor leagues, and can't help but be impressed by Vlad Guerrero Jr.'s performance as an 18-year-old so far.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
It's extremely difficult to evaluate an international signee's first year in pro ball, especially when that prospect signed when he was 19. Ona, a 6-foot, 220-pound Cuban, was 15 percent better than an average hitter in the Midwest League, but with only 11 home runs and a .128 ISO, it seemed like he came up shy of expectations. He has a right field profile, and was expected to bring plus right-handed power to the table. While he does have plus raw power, his aggressive approach muted that pop somewhat, as he failed to get into hitter's counts. His .277 average seems like the high end of what we can reasonably expect, as he rarely uses the opposite field and his .357 BABIP was the sixth highest mark in the league. He stole eight bases on 10 attempts, but is a below-average runner, so at best he will be a four-category contributor. While he failed to improve his stock in Year 1, it's advisable to be patient with Ona in deeper leagues, as he should put up better power numbers in the California League.
Ona is the rare international free agent signing who has loud offensive tools and is not at least five or six years away from the big leagues. He was 19 when the Padres inked him to a $7 million bonus, but the Cuban corner outfielder will be 20 when he debuts, likely at Low-A Fort Wayne or High-A Lake Elsinore. General manager A.J. Preller compared Ona's compact, muscular 6-foot-2 frame to that of Albert Belle. While he didn't go as far as to compare Ona to Belle from a talent standpoint, that's the general skill set the Padres are hoping for -- big right-handed power with a 55- or 60-grade hit tool. He might be an average runner now, but speed won't be a part of his game by the time he reaches the majors. Unfortunately, Ona hasn't played much non-showcase baseball since defecting, so it is hard to say how quickly he will acclimate to game action, but he has the potential to move relatively quickly.
