Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 55 | Power: 40 | Run: 40 | Arm: 55 | Field: 50 | Overall: 45

Arias was the shortstop on a loaded Cuban 18-and-under national team in 2014, playing alongside Top 100 Prospects Michel Baez (Padres), Yusniel Diaz (Orioles), Julio Pablo Martinez (Rangers) and Luis Robert (White Sox). He debuted in Cuba's top national league at age 17 before defecting in 2015 and signing with the Rangers two years later for $700,000. He made a strong impression by topping the short-season Northwest League in batting (.366) and on-base percentage (.451) during his U.S. debut last summer.

Though he was old for the NWL at age 21, Arias has advanced hitting skills. With a compact right-handed swing, nice feel for the barrel and a disciplined approach, he drills line drives to all fields. He's not a big home run threat but can drive the ball to the gaps and produce a healthy amount of doubles.

A below-average runner, Arias lacks the range to play shortstop at the big league level. With his solid arm and reliable hands, he fits best at third base, where he saw the majority of his action in 2018. He projects as an average defender at the hot corner who also could fill in at second base on occasion.
