Scouting Report

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

Acquired as part of the three-team trade in the Dec. 2014 that sent him and Robbie Ray from Detroit to Arizona and made Didi Gregorius a Yankee, Leyba's stock was on the rise two years later when he hit .301 as a 20-year-old in Double-A as part of a breakout campaign that earned him a spot on the D-backs' 40-man roster. His development was stalled in 2017 as shoulder surgery cost him all but 23 games. He made a healthy return to Double-A last spring and ultimately garnered honors as the Southern League Championship Series MVP while leading Jackson to a title. He built upon that progress at Triple-A Reno in 2019 and made his big league debut in June.

Leyba has plus bat-to-ball skills which enable him to make a lot of quality contact from both sides of the plate. His natural hitting ability has improved along with his plate discipline, and he's shown more of a willingness to take walks while striking out less. He may never be a huge power guy, but the improved approach has Leyba starting to tap into his raw power, albeit mostly from the left side. While he's played mostly shortstop, he's shown he can more than handle second base.

Leyba looks like he'll be a solid utility player, possibly even soon, with second-division regular potential if he can tap into more power.
