Alexander Canario
18-Year-Old OutfielderOF
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Those anxiously trying to add a prospect who dominated in the Dominican Summer League this past season should look at Canario's 2018 as a dose of reality. He logged a 147 wRC+ as a 17-year-old in the DSL in 2017, showcasing a combination of power and speed that was difficult to ignore. However, the DSL is a very unique league. Players who excel there are not guaranteed to have similar success in stateside rookie leagues. Take Canario, whose K% jumped from 14.6% to 24.5% after the jump to the AZL. The quality of his contact also suffered, as he struggled to take what pitchers were giving him (often selling out for power), and saw fewer mistakes to crush. He struck out 14 times in his first eight AZL games, but hit .277/.380/.468 with six home runs and six steals in his final 167 PA. Canario still has a chance to develop into a five-category force (above-average power and speed), but needs to work on using the whole field while letting his power come naturally. Read Past Outlooks
Showing off patience in AZL

August 10, 2018
Canario is hitting .278/.395/.444 with four home runs, eight steals (on 11 attempts) and a 37:22 K:BB in 153 plate appearances in the AZL.
He got off to a really slow start, hitting .143 in June, but he hit .333 in July and is hitting .316 so far in August, so he has lived up to the hype after an initial adjustment period. While Canario has excellent bat speed, he can be susceptible to offspeed pitches, so there will likely be plenty more adjustment periods as he moves up the ranks. Look for him to open the 2019 season at Low-A.
