Luis Sangel Arraez

Born San Felipe, Venezuela 4/9/97 (20)

Signed Nov. 5th 2013 

2nd Basemen

Bat: L Throw: R

Ht: 5' 10" Wt: 155

 

2014-DSL 348/433/400 in 115 at bats. He only hit 6 extra base hits, all doubles. He stole 10 of 15 bases attempted. He had 16 walks and 9 strike outs.

2015-GCL 309/377/391 in 207 at bats. Again no home runs but 15 doubles and a triple. He stole 8 of 16 attempted. He had 19 walks and 10 strike outs.

2016-A- 347/386/444 in 475 at bats. He finally starte hitting home runs (3) adding 31 doubles and 3 triples. He only attempted 6 stolen bases and was caught 3 times.

2017-A+ Arraez tore his ACL after his 13th at bat trying to leg out a single April 9th. He was put on the DL on the 10th and on the 20th it was announced that he was done for the season.

 

Arraez can hit and put together REALLY good at bats but he has not displayed power. As a second baseman, traditionally that is enough but with the league as it is today, that might not be enough. Arraez is expected to go back to Fort Myers and hopefully have a healthy comeback year.

Arraez is still listed on the Fort Myers Roster on his MiLB page but is not on the News Release of the opening day roster. Best bet is that he is still recovering from the torn ACL suffered last season. Hopefully, he can be activated sooner than later. IF anyone knows his progress in the recovery, an update would be appreciated.

I asked Seth about him yesterday, as I wanted to update the OP to this thread. Seth said he was still listed on the DL, but I didn't ask anything further as to the timing of it.

Nevertheless, she persisted. Time’s up.

Real sleeper of a prospect - hope he becomes more than the last 2nd base prospect for the Twins out of Venezuela, Luis Rivas. Not a bad player actually, just not special. Still, played for the Twins age 20-25. Pretty amazing he held his own. Never hit below .250.

Plus, he had the whole Rodney thing going on with the hat:

Sorry, not trying to hijack - Arraez has won MiLB batting championships. Hope he comes back from surgery with a vengeance.
