2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: Born in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, Navarreto’s family moved to Jacksonville, Florida, and he attended Arlington Country Day School. He was taken by the Twins in the 6th round, the first of five players from the school drafted that year (two years after Javier Baez was). He spent that summer in the GCL and moved up to Elizabethton in 2014. At 6-4 and 220 pounds, Navarreto physically resembles a young Salvador Preez. To this point, he hasn’t hit like the Royals All Star, but the potential is there for a lot of power. Defensively, Navarreto has a big arm. He has thrown out 59% and 56% of would-be base stealers the last two seasons. He’s got good footwork and mechanics. He’s still working on calling a game and working with pitchers.
