Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
Bracho, 19, is a 5-foot-11 second baseman whose body is already close to maxed out but whose bat might do enough damage for him to make it as a regular. The switch hitter goes to the plate looking to do damage, and he has never logged an ISO lower than .259 or a wRC+ lower than 141. That's the kind of offensive impact he will need to continue to display as he climbs the ladder, as his defense at the keystone is already suspect and a move to left field may be necessary down the road. He is walking a fine line with his flyball rates (over 51%) and pull rates, and for that reason, it's hard to project a high batting average. Bracho has logged high walk rates, however, so he is more appealing in OBP leagues. He spent the summer at the alternate training site and then went to the fall instructional league, setting up a Low-A debut this season.
Bracho received $1.5 million as part of the Indians' July 2, 2017 international signing class, but he missed all of 2018 with an arm injury. He proved to be worth the wait, walking more (16.8 BB%) than he struck out (15.3 K%) while hitting for average (.296) and power (.296 ISO) in the AZL. With an already bad body (think Jason Kipnis or Brian Dozier), Bracho's offense will always be ahead of his defense at second base, but he will be an everyday player if he comes close to his offensive ceiling. His flyball rate was a little too high (well over 50%), and that could compromise his potentially plus hit tool if he doesn't make an adjustment. The most impressive aspect of his debut was his ability to walk at such a high clip while also selling out for power when he swung. There will undoubtedly be an adjustment period for Bracho sooner than later, but his four-category upside is through the roof.
