Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 55 | Run: 30 | Arm: 50 | Field: 45 | Overall: 40

Curletta's professional odyssey began as a high schooler in Arizona drafted by the Dodgers in the sixth round of the 2012 Draft. There he stayed as an outfielder until September 2016 when he was sent to the Phillies to complete the Carlos Ruiz trade. He never actually played a game for the Phillies as they traded him the following March to the Mariners for switch-pitcher Pat Venditte. Playing in Double-A for a full season for the first time in 2018, the big right-handed slugger won Texas League Player of the Year honors and earned a spot on the 40-man roster.

Ever since his high school days, Curletta was known for his strength and ability to punish the baseball and spent much of his early career focusing only on his power. While the raw pop is very much still there, he led the organization in home runs and RBIs in 2018. Curletta has upped his walk rate and dropped his strikeout rate in each of his two seasons with Seattle. He's managing the zone better and showing an ability to make adjustments, beginning to understand that good pitch selection will lead to better run production.

Curletta still has work to do on his defense at first, but he's worked at it and should be adequate enough to play the spot. He's worked hard to get where he is and is now looking like he might have the profile to play first base regularly in the big leagues.
