Sometimes trades are made to bring in big-time prospects. Then sometimes smaller deals are made, and an organization brings in a Minor Leaguer who turns out to be much better than expected. That's what happened with Rengifo. After signing out of Venezuela, the infielder spent his first three summers with the Mariners, then was traded to the Rays in August 2017. He wasn't there for long as he was dealt to the Angels as part of the C.J. Cron trade not long before the start of the 2018 season. He took off in his new environment playing across three levels of the system and finishing the year in Triple-A.

Rengifo has always shown a knack for making consistent contact from both sides of the plate using a short and compact swing geared for line drives. While he's never going to be a huge power guy, he did show more extra-base pop in 2018. He's never been prone to striking out, and he combined that with a big increase in his walk rate, making him an even better all-around hitter. While he's not a burner, he's a smart baserunner, allowing him to lead the organization in steals a year ago.

Over the course of his career, Rengifo has played a number of positions -- he played on both sides of second in his first year with the Angels organization and has the defensive attributes to handle both spots. Once thought to be a sure-fire utilityman, his 2018 breakout has many thinking he could be a big league regular in the near future.
