2019 Fantasy Outlook
Two of the top hitters from the 2017 J-2 signing class were sent directly to the Appalachian League, skipping the Dominican Summer League and Gulf Coast League altogether. One was the Rays' Wander Franco, who is now a top-five prospect in baseball. The other was Pereira, who performed how we should expect a 17-year-old to perform in his first pro assignment to a league where he was over three years younger than the average player. He struck out too much (32.8 K%) and did not do much damage when he did connect (.126 ISO, .389 SLG). It is important to remember why he was given this assignment. The Yankees believed Pereira would not be properly challenged in the DSL or GCL. He was only 12 percent worse than the average Appy League hitter, which is nothing to be ashamed of, given his age. Pereira still has plus speed and a promising future in center field. If his hit tool and plus raw power develop like the Yankees expect, he could be the breakout prospect of 2019. Read Past Outlooks

Pereira is hitting .278/.331/.410 with three home runs and three steals in 157 plate appearances in the Appalachian League.
ANALYSIS
Pereira, 17, is the youngest player in the Appy League -- over a month younger than Rays phenom Wander Franco. Unlike Franco, Pereira has been slightly below league average (95 wRC+) at the dish, but given his age, his production has been excellent. His 30.6 percent strikeout rate is high, but he has been using all fields and getting to some power in games, which are excellent indicators for his long-term potential.
