Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 55 | Power: 50 | Run: 50 | Arm: 50 | Field: 50 | Overall: 50

The Indians continued their recent trend of collecting international players with advanced bats when they signed Bracho out of Venezuela for $1.5 million, the largest bonus in their 2017 class. He would have come to the United States for his debut at age 17 last summer, but he fractured his right arm in May and missed the entire Rookie-level Arizona League season. He's thriving while seeing his first pro action this summer in the AZL.

A switch-hitter, Bracho has a quick, compact swing and exhibits precocious feel for the barrel from both sides of the plate. He makes repeated hard contact, already drives balls to the gaps and should have 20-homer power once he matures physically. Presently an above-average runner, he figures to slow down a bit as he gets stronger.

Though Bracho would have broken into pro ball as a shortstop in 2018, most international scouts thought he was destined for second base and the Indians have deployed him there this summer. While his actions and average arm are substandard at short, his fast hands should be an asset when it comes to turning double plays at second. He could become a solid defender at second base if he can quicken his footwork.
