2019 Fantasy Outlook
Mesa, who goes by Victor Victor in an effort to distinguish himself from his father, Victor Mesa Sr. -- a baseball legend in Cuba, signed in October with the Marlins for $5.25 million, the largest bonus in the 2018 international signing class. He immediately became Miami’s best prospect by a wide margin. While his reported physical tools (50-grade raw power, 70-grade speed) at the time of his signing are comparable to recent high-profile outfield signees out of Cuba (Luis Robert, Lazaro Armenteros, Julio Pablo Martinez), Victor Victor’s hit tool is seen as a strength, not a cause for concern, as was the case with that aforementioned trio. He should be a plus defender in center field, and has drawn comparisons to Victor Robles, given his defensive tools, potential to hit for a high average, steal 25-plus bases and chip in double-digit home runs. The 22-year-old could be sent directly to High-A for his debut season, and should reach the majors in 2020 or 2021. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
The 22-year-old outfielder and his younger brother Victor Mesa Jr., both sons of former Cuban baseball player Victor Mesa, defected in 2018 and are both eligible to sign this offseason. This Mesa looks to be able to stick in center with the potential for average or better tools across the board, generating comparisons to Albert Almora. He hit .275/.334/.378 in six seasons in Cuba, breaking into the league as a 16-year-old. The signing is expected to be confirmed at a press conference Monday, during which the Marlins may also be announcing the signing of the younger Mesa.
