Scouting Report

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

Amaya impressed scouts at the 2017 National High School Invitational but concerned them with his commitment to Cal State Fullerton. He fell to the 11th round and the Dodgers, for whom his grandfather Frank was a Minor League shortstop in the 1950s, before signing for an over-slot $247,500. After a so-so pro debut, he was one of the best hitters in the Rookie-level Pioneer League last summer before earning a promotion to low Class A at age 19.

Amaya spent his first pro offseason concentrating on getting stronger and hit the ball with more authority in 2018. He has a sound right-handed swing with advanced feel for the barrel, controls the strike zone well and uses the entire field. He has some gap power but hasn't fully tapped into it because he tends to hit the ball on the ground.

An average runner, Amaya has outstanding instincts that allow him to play quicker than that on the bases and in the middle of the infield. He has solid arm strength and a nose for the ball, projecting as at least an average defender at shortstop and perhaps plus at second base. Club officials love his constant energy and work ethic.
