2019 Fantasy Outlook
In every July 2 international signing period, there are a few top players who already project as prospects who will be better in fantasy than reality. Marte, who signed for $1.55 million out of the Dominican Republic, is a prime example from the 2018 crop. He showcases a classic power-hitting swing from the right side, and may have as much home run and batting average upside as any international prospect in his class. Marte has the actions and a good enough arm for shortstop, but may eventually move to third base. He currently measures in at 6-foot-1, 181 pounds, but looks like he will add at least another 20-to-30 pounds in the coming years, so maintaining good eating habits and conditioning will be crucial if he is to reach his ceiling and not fall down the defensive spectrum. While he is a good runner now, that won't be a big part of his game by the time he reaches the majors in five or six years. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
While it would have been fun to see Marte challenged with a stateside assignment right out of the gate, his org. mate Julio Rodriguez was a top July 2 signee in 2017, went to the DSL in 2018, and was assigned to Low-A this year out of camp, so Marte will hope to follow that blueprint. He received a $1.55 million bonus on July 2, 2018, and has significant five-category upside.
