Abraham Toro

24-Year-Old Third Baseman3B
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Toro had some preseason helium last year as a sleeper and saw regular action with the Astros in August and early September, but the 24-year-old didn't capitalize on the opportunity. The switch hitter has flashed excellent contact skills and some power potential in the high minors, but so far in his big-league career he's had trouble elevating the ball to take full advantage of the latter. He has the defensive chops to handle a starting assignment at the hot corner, but with Alex Bregman locked in at third base, Toro will have to settle for a utility role, and perhaps not even as the primary one on the bench with Aledmys Diaz still around. Toro still has time to put things together, but as was the case in 2020, he'll likely need injuries to open a path to consistent playing time. Read Past Outlooks

Homers late in win
3BSeattle Mariners
September 30, 2021
Toro went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Athletics.
ANALYSIS
Toro added an insurance run on late for the M's with a solo home run off Sergio Romo in the eighth to put them up 4-2. The long ball was his first since Aug. 31. The 24-year-old was cruising at the beginning of the month, hitting .323/.389/.452 through his first eight games but has since fallen back a ton, hitting just .111/.176/.175 since Sept. 11. Toro remains a bright young piece of this Mariners team and will look to build on Wednesday's homer during the final series of the season, which begins Friday against the Angels.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
An assault on Double-A (153 wRC+) and Triple-A (179 wRC+) pitching combined with defensive competency at third base led to Toro making his big-league debut in August while the Astros were short-handed in the infield. He simplified his swing in 2018 while playing in the Arizona Fall League and those adjustments led to him being the best hitter in the Texas League after being a below-average hitter (89 wRC+) in 50 games there in 2018. A switch hitter who turned 23 this offseason, Toro excels at making contact and walked over 10% of the time at all three stops. His groundball rate was elite in the minors (under 40% at Double-A and Triple-A), but a 50.0 GB% contributed to his struggles in a small sample in the majors. He could be a plus hitter with above-average power, but is blocked at his three positions (third base, second base and designated hitter) to begin the season.
