Cruz, 17, is hitting .313/.337/.434 with two home runs and four steals (on five attempts) in 83 at-bats in the Gulf Coast League.
A top-five international prospect in last year's J-2 class, Cruz has wasted no time establishing himself as one of the top prospects in rookie ball. His 70-to-80 grade speed and ability to stick up the middle was the selling point when the Braves signed him, but for him to be showcasing this level of comfort in the box is very exciting. At 6-foot-1, 180 pounds, Cruz could certainly develop into a five-category fantasy threat, and he should get hyped as such this offseason if he can keep up this pace.
