Scouting Report

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

At the start of his professional career, Fuentes was undoubtedly known more for being Nolan Arrenado's cousin than anything else. But after the non-drafted free agent hit over .300 three years in a row, including his .327 average en route to winning the Triple-A Pacific Coast League MVP award, he's created a name for himself. When he kept on hitting in the Arizona Fall League last fall, the Rockies added him to the 40-man roster.

Fuentes' offensive transformation began three years ago, in 2016, when he had to go back and repeat the South Atlantic League after a pedestrian 2015 season there. He made some adjustments and hasn't stopped doing so since, showing an innate ability to make hard contact. He's mixed in a leg kick that helps him stay back, allowing him to add more leverage and power. While he doesn't walk much, he also keeps his strikeouts low.

A very natural and easy defender, Fuentes is like his cousin with his terrific instincts at the hot corner. After playing a lot of first base early in his career, he started mixing it back in during the 2018 season, with the versatility giving his bat a better chance to break into the big leagues.
