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.

Timely two-bagger in win
OFTampa Bay Rays
July 28, 2021
Arozarena went 2-for-4 with an RBI ground-rule double in a loss to the Yankees on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
The 26-year-old brought the Rays to within a run with his eighth-inning two-bagger, locking in his fifth multi-hit effort in the last seven contests. Arozarena has been putting especially good wood on the ball during that span as well, considering Tuesday's double was his sixth extra-base hit (out of 12 hits overall) during that sample.

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.
