Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 40 | Run: 50 | Arm: 55 | Field: 55 | Overall: 50

The Cubs ranked second behind only the Dodgers in international spending during the 2015-16 signing period, handing out $16.4 million in bonuses. The best player from that crop is Ademan, who landed a $2 million bonus out of the Dominican Republic. His maturity has led Chicago to push him aggressively, and while he was able to handle low Class A at age 18 in 2017, he scuffled as the youngest regular in the high Class A Carolina League last year.

Though he batted just .207/.291/.273 in 2018, Ademan still displayed an efficient left-handed swing and an advanced approach. He recognizes pitches well and uses the entire field, though his rough season demonstrated his need to add strength. He won't ever be a slugger but needs more muscle in order to reach his potential as an above-average hitter with some occasional pull power.

Ademan's instincts allow him to play above his average speed on the bases and in the field. He has a good internal clock at shortstop, as well as the solid hands, range and arm to make plays there. His tools should allow him to play second base and third base if he needs to fill a utility role, though he should hit enough to be a regular if he gets the chance to catch his breath.
