Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 55 | Run: 55 | Arm: 70 | Field: 50 | Overall: 45

It's long been said that the Double-A level is often the one that separates the men from the boys. Many prospects have stumbled there, with how they learn from that adversity and adjust a key to what kind of player they become. The Reds will be watching to see how Aquino handles all of that after really struggling in the Southern League in 2017.

Aquino still has tremendous raw tools. Despite his struggles, he still hit for power and played a strong right field with very good speed and a plus arm that runners didn't want to test. Facing more advanced pitchers, however, didn't go so well overall. Aquino saw a steady diet of breaking and offspeed pitches and he never adjusted to it. He's always been an aggressive hitter, but his strikeout rate spiked with his inability to recognize softer stuff.

The good news is Aquino's raw tools still give him a chance to succeed. He'll have to show that he can make adjustments, not just from last year's struggles, but from game to game and at-bat to at-bat. How he does that will determine if he can be one of those prospects who can run the Double-A gauntlet and move forward.
