Vinnie Pasquantino

24-Year-Old First Baseman1B
Kansas City Royals AAA
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Pasquantino had one of the more flawless statistical seasons in the minors, hitting .300/.394/.563 with 24 home runs and a 64:64 K:BB in 116 games across High-A and Double-A. Nick Pratto is ahead of him on the organizational depth chart, as he spent half the year at Triple-A and was added to the 40-man roster, but Pasquantino is the better long-term bet to hit enough to profile as an everyday first baseman. He makes good swing decisions and has a prototypical swing, hitting the ball on the ground less than 35% of the time. While he seems to have a bright future and is already 24 years old, the Royals will probably use this season to evaluate Pratto and MJ Melendez at the big-league level before turning to Pasquantino, but there's a chance he forces the issue.

Showing power, patience in Triple-A

May 18, 2022
Pasquantino is hitting .240/.362/.512 with eight homers and a 22:23 BB:K through 35 games for Triple-A Omaha.
ANALYSIS
It's not a bad batting line, but the batting average certainly has to be considered disappointing for a guy with Pasquantino's contact skills. That said, he's sitting on a .226 BABIP, so he should be able to pull his average up as the season wears on. Right now, it looks like Pasquantino is likely to beat fellow Royals first-base prospect Nick Pratto to the big leagues, though the team seems content to wait for both of them to force their way up.
