Scouting Report

Scouting Grades: Hit: 40 | Power: 45 | Run: 60 | Arm: 60 | Field: 55 | Overall: 45

Signed for $140,000 out of the Dominican Republic in December 2012, Liberato continues to show loud tools on both sides of the ball, though injuries have slowed his development. He landed on the disabled list twice in 2016 with a right hamstring injury that continued to plague him in 2017, leading to two more trips to the DL. It was still Liberato's healthiest and most productive season to date, as he slashed .246/.312/.438 while setting career highs with 110 hits, 14 homers, 14 triples over 125 games between Class A Clinton and Class A Advanced Modesto.

With good strength to his wiry-athletic frame, the left-handed-hitting Liberato began to drive the ball with more authority and clear some fences in 2017 after totaling just nine home runs in his previous 270 games. He still has timing issues with his swing, as well as an inconsistent barrel path that results in too much swing-and-miss and hinders him in hitting for average, but the overall approach is solid and he's not afraid to take a walk. Liberato is a plus runner and an instinctive outfielder, with the skills to play center and the necessary plus arm strength to profile at an outfield corner.

Liberato has a chance to reach the big leagues on the merits of his speed and defense, though without consistent production at the plate, he's unlikely to serve as anything more than a bench outfielder.
