Tucupita Marcano
19-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
2019 Fantasy Outlook
When a team consistently signs double-digit international prospects every July 2, some unheralded names will inevitably emerge along with the big-ticket signees. Marcano is an example from the 2016 class. His slight, wiry frame (6-foot, 165 pounds) leads to skepticism about him developing into an everyday player, but so far he has done everything in is power to steal playing time from higher-pedigree middle infielders in the best system in baseball. Marcano led the AZL with a 173 wRC+, thanks largely to an absurd 10:26 K:BB (6.3 K%, 16.3 BB%) in 160 PA. He only had five extra-base hits (four doubles, one triple), but his .497 OBP led the league by over 60 points. The middle infielder's Northwest League production was less preposterous, but he still demonstrated elite plate skills and an all-fields approach (6:4 K:BB, 41.5 Pull%, 36.9 Oppo% in 77 PA). Marcano's fantasy upside hinges on him continuing to showcase an elite hit tool with plus speed on the bases. Read Past Outlooks

Swinging hot bat in Low-A
2BSan Diego Padres  A
May 7, 2019
Marcano went 14-for-26 for Low-A Fort Wayne last week, Bill Center of Padres.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The 19-year-old was named the Player of the Week in the Midwest League for his efforts, per Center, and is now hitting .308 with an impressive .383 on-base percentage in 27 games for Fort Wayne. If there's a knock on his stat line so far, it'd be his lack of power as he's hit just one homer with a .393 slugging percentage. He's still flashing potential at the dish in his brief career thus far, as he dominated in the Arizona League as an 18-year-old last year, with a .395/.497/.444 slash line while also swiping 10 bases.
