26-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Tampa Bay Rays
2021 Fantasy Outlook
A hitter who was never a top-100 prospect and just had the best statistical postseason ever is technically still a prospect. He doesn't feel like it anymore, though, and Arozarena is six years older than Wander Franco. Arozarena has notable regular-season splits (279 wRC+, 11.1 K% vs. LHP, 125 wRC+, 31.9 K% vs. RHP), but he logged a 1.408 OPS, eight HR, and a 21.6 K% against RHP in his historic postseason run. Small samples are all we have with him against MLB pitching -- he hit lefties better than righties in the minors -- but it's safe to say he has the power (career .381 ISO) and sprint speed (93rd percentile) to go 20/20 in a full season. There is no doubt Arozarena will play almost every day early in 2021, but the Rays can be ruthless with platoons, so the main risk on this loaded roster would be that he struggles against righties early and starts ceding playing time to left-handed hitters.

Homers, steals home in Game 1
OFTampa Bay Rays
October 8, 2021
Arozarena went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, two additional runs scored, two walks and a stolen base during a win over the Red Sox in Game 1 of the ALDS.
ANALYSIS
The 26-year-old hit leadoff and walked to start things off for Tampa Bay, and he quickly came around to score on a double from Wander Franco. Arozarena then homered in the fifth inning and walked again in the seventh, and he had successful steal of home with two outs. Arozarena was electric in the playoffs for the Rays last year with a 1.273 OPS and 10 homers, and he's started the 2021 playoffs in similar fashion.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2017
Arozarena made his big-league debut at age 24, performing well in a small sample. He spent the bulk of the season in the high minors, hitting .344/.431/.571 with 15 homers and 17 steals in 92 games at the Double-A and Triple-A levels. All told, Arozarena had a 1.174 OPS in 84 PA against southpaws across the three levels (he had a 1.000 OPS in 96 PA vs. LHP in 2018), which was part of the appeal when the platoon-happy Rays acquired him from St. Louis in a multi-player offseason deal. His 12 home runs in 64 games at Triple-A were at least partially the product of the juiced ball at that level, but his sprint speed is in the 96th percentile. As one of their outfielders with minor-league options remaining, Arozarena is a long shot to break camp with the Rays. However, his ability to handle all three outfield spots and crush lefties could lead to opportunities at some point this summer.
Arozarena, who has been labeled as one of the top young Cuban prospects, inked a deal with the Cardinals in July of 2016. The 21-year-old's skill set is highlighted by his advanced plate discipline, plus contact skills and impressive speed on the basepaths. He operates more as a contact hitter, but has the tools to develop into a modest home run hitter in the future. During his last full season in the Cuban Serie Nacional, Arozarena batted .291/.412/.419 with 15 steals (21 attempts). He spent the 2015-2016 season playing in the Mexican Northern League, where he led all players in batting average and stolen bases. It is yet to be seen what position he will play for the Cardinals, as he has seen extended time at second base and the outfield in the past. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him start the season in full-season ball.
