2018 Fantasy Outlook
There are reasons to be skeptical about Florial’s breakout campaign, but his enormous tools are too much to ignore. A 19-year-old with plus-plus raw power and above average speed who dominates the Midwest League and doesn’t skip a beat after a late-season promotion to the Florida State League needs to be taken very seriously. That said, he whiffed at a 31.1 percent clip across both stops and posted batting averages on balls in play of .431 and .404 at Low-A and High-A, respectively. Florial’s hit tool is below average at present, but that doesn’t mean he won’t improve in that department. He already shows a willingness to work the count (10.5 percent walk rate), and if he can learn to take what pitchers give him and hit the ball to the opposite field more often, we could be looking at a five-category monster in the Alfonso Soriano mold. His ceiling is up there with any prospect not named Ronald Acuna, but the risk involved leaves him outside the top 20, for now. Read Past Outlooks

Florial (wrist) was reinstated from the minor-league disabled list Thursday, Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News reports.
ANALYSIS
Florial will return to action with High-A Tampa after suffering a hamate bone injury in his right wrist in the middle of May. Over nine rehab contests with the organization's Rookie League Gulf Coast affiliate, Florial went 17-for-31 (.548 average) with three home runs, eight RBI and five stolen bases. More importantly, he didn't experience any problems and will resume his 2018 campaign in the Florida State League in the coming days.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Florial is a teenager from Haiti who started the season in the rookie-level Appalachian League and ended the year at High-A Tampa. Of course, the ascension is a bit misleading, as Florial hit just .225 with 78 strikeouts in 60 games for Pulaski before a brief bump to Low-A Charleston. Florial went 6-for-20 over that subsequent five-game span before finishing the season with two games at High-A. Florial is a left-handed center field prospect who should hit double-digit home runs and swipe double-digit bases in the coming seasons. He must cut down on his strikeouts and prove he can hit for average, but that intriguing power/speed combination makes him a prospect to watch for the Yankees. He should start the 2017 season back at Low-A.
