2023 Fantasy Outlook
Salas has been incredibly young for his levels, but he hasn't been super productive, save for stealing 33 bases on 34 tries in 109 games across Single-A and High-A. He turns 20 in April and already has 217 plate appearances at High-A under his belt. There are shades of Luis Garcia with the Nationals, where he is accelerating through the minors at the pace of a phenom, but he doesn't actually have loud tools. Salas has good makeup and bloodlines - his younger brother Ethan is the top overall prospect in the Jan. 15, 2023 international signing class - but despite his stolen-base prowess, he gets average run grades from scouts and average power grades. Given his lack of impact athleticism or strength, it would be nice if Salas projected for a plus hit tool, but he is a career .268 hitter in the minors. He is expected to end up at second base or third base. Read Past Outlooks

The Marlins traded Salas along with right-hander Pablo Lopez to the Twins on Friday in exchange for Luis Arraez, Craig Mish of reports.
Salas reached the High-A level for the first time in 2022, though he slashed just .230/.319/.340 in 217 plate appearances. The 19-year-old switch-hitter was considered one of the top prospects in the Marlins' farm system, and Salas' defensive versatility could help him rise through the Twins' minor-league system more quickly than expected.
