Wenceel Perez
19-Year-Old ShortstopSS
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Perez was a notable July 2 signee in 2016, but was a six-figure ($550,000) guy, and was therefore widely available in dynasty leagues for much of 2018. The hype caught up to his performance in a hurry, however. He was 85% better than the Gulf Coast League's average hitter before quickly getting promoted to the New York-Penn League in mid-July. The fast track continued, with the Tigers bumping him up to the Midwest league for the final three weeks. Perez, a switch hitter and 60-grade runner, slashed .312/.363/.429 with three home runs, 13 steals (on 18 attempts) and a 13.6 K% in 57 games across the three stops. Evaluators love the way he controls the barrel, so if he can add some muscle to his 5-foot-11, 170-pound frame, the hope is that he can eventually develop 15-homer pop. If not, he should at least hit for a high average while stealing 20-plus bases. He is the Tigers' best shortstop prospect, but is several years away from the majors. Read Past Outlooks
