Past Fantasy Outlooks
Unfortunately we're still awaiting Acosta's official pro debut. He impressed enough after signing for $1.65 million out of Venezuela in 2019 that he may have opened 2020 in the AZL were it not for the pandemic. Gleyber Torres comps have fueled his ascent up prospect rankings, and that player archetype is the general idea. He could develop into a bat-first middle infielder who hits for average and power. Like Torres, there's a chance his thicker lower half results in him being just a four-category contributor in fantasy, but there are some who expect him to chip in a handful of steals early in his MLB career. Acosta will open 2020 as one of the youngest players in the AZL, and if his bat is as advertised, his dynasty-league value will continue to climb.
With 16-year-old international prospects who sign every year on July 2, there is an initial wave of hype when they sign, and then there is the second wave of hype after they play in front of evaluators in the informal Tricky League in the Dominican Republic, where official stats aren't tracked. Acosta received $1.65 million when he signed, but it wasn't until later that he emerged as one of the top prospects from his class. A 6-foot-1, 170-pound shortstop out of Venezuela, Acosta grew roughly four inches since he committed to signing with Texas. The added physicality translated at the dish, where he showed the potential for a plus hit tool and above-average power. He garners comparisons to Gleyber Torres and is currently a 60-grade runner with an excellent approach and plus bat speed. Given how well he showed after signing, he could bypass the Dominican Summer League and go straight to the AZL.
