Minnesota Twins
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Arraez hit .298 with a .710 OPS after missing all but three games in 2017 due to a torn ACL. Arraez is one of the best pure hitters in the Twins' system, but has not hit for much power or shown much speed on the bases. At 5-foot-10, 155 pounds, he doesn't project to grow into much more than 10-to-15 homer pop. His hit tool and defense will have to carry him if he is to make it as an everyday player.

October 4, 2019
Arraez (ankle) will bat ninth and play second base in Game 1 of the ALDS on Friday against the Twins.
ANALYSIS
Arraez left Saturday's game against the Royals with an ankle sprain, but the issue was evidently fairly minor. He posted a .334/.399/.439 slash line in his 92-game rookie season, excellent numbers for a No. 9 hitter.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Arraez, signed out of Venezuela at age 16, saw his stock continue to rise in the Twins organization after hitting .347 with an .830 OPS at Low-A Cedar Rapids. Arraez doesn't draw a ton of walks, but makes very good contact (89 percent) with a low strikeout rate (9.9 percent). He could be on the fast track to the majors with a strong season at High-A.
Arraez hit .306 in the rookie Gulf Coast League with a reasonable .320 BABIP last year, playing primarily at second base but also seeing time at third base, shortstop and left field. His approach also seems to be uniquely advanced for any player in the minor leagues, not to mention an 18-year-old. He had 20 walks and 10 strikeouts in 233 plate appearances. While he doesn't have any power at the moment (.082 ISO), his outstanding contact rate at a young age should put him on dynasty league radars. The Twins figure to keep Arraez on a slow, safe development path, but he will likely receive his first full-season assignment relatively early on in 2016.
