Scouting Report

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

The Mets were encouraged by how Carpio responded to an aggressive push to the Appalachian League for his United States debut in 2015 after having signed him for $300,000 in July 2013. A shoulder injury in 2016, after he hit over .300 the prior summer, forced him out for most of the season. He struggled to impact the baseball when he returned in 2017, but rebounded with Class A Advanced St. Lucie in '18, showing some newfound power to go along with his usual strong defense.

Employing a more launch-oriented swing with an emphasis on hitting the ball in the air, Carpio started to tap into some consistent pop in the Florida State League. The result was a career-high 12 home runs across 112 contests after he had hit four homers in 250 games during his first four seasons. He's continued to add strength, too, leading some to believe he may hit for even more power going forward. His feel to hit leaves something to be desired, though he does put together solid at-bats and has a willingness to draw walks. He has the defensive chops to play shortstop regularly, but primarily has played second base in the wake of his shoulder surgery. An average runner, he's smart enough to swipe some bases but needs to improve as a basestealer.

The Mets believe the 2019 season will be a telling one for Carpio, and their hope is that his overall game will begin to come together after he showed flashes of ability early in his career.
