Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 55 | Run: 65 | Arm: 65 | Field: 60 | Overall: 55

Assuming the identity of Haniel de Oleo when registering for school in the Dominican Republic, Florial emerged as one of the top prospects on the 2014 international signing market, but MLB banned him from signing for one year after discovering the discrepancy. After he produced a Haitian birth certificate with a slightly different birthdate, the Yankees signed him in March 2015 for $200,000, a fraction of what he would have earned without the controversy. He quickly established that he had the best all-around tools in the system, though his development was slowed by right hamate surgery that cost him two months last summer and will be again after he broke his right wrist when he crashed into the center-field wall during Spring Training.

Florial excites scouts with three tools that grade as well above average: his raw power, speed and arm strength. With the bat speed and loft in his left-handed swing, he's well equipped to take advantage of Yankee Stadium. He's still raw and overly aggressive as a hitter, leading to concerns about whether he can make enough contact to realize his full potential, though he did post the best walk rate (13 percent) and second-best strikeout rate (25 percent) of his career during his truncated 2018 season.

Florial also has a lot to learn about basestealing, though if he puts everything together he could become a 30-30 player. He's improving as a defender in center field and should be an asset there in the big leagues. His cannon arm will fit anywhere he's needed.
