Scouting Report

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

One of the top prospects in the 2016-17 international amateur class, Brito got $1.1 million to sign with the A's in July 2016. He made his pro debut the following summer and came to the United States, following that up with a step up to the Short-Season New York-Penn League in 2018. While he hasn't wowed with performance, he has made slow and steady progress.

It hasn't shown up on the stat line just yet, but Brito has the chance to hit from both sides of the plate, though he's a touch better swinging the bat left-handed. He's added some strength as he's matured and while he's never going to be a power guy, there should be the ability to impact the ball with some extra-base authority to all fields. Brito initially spent time bouncing between second and third, but it's looking more and more likely that second base is his long-term defensive home with an arm that's a little short for the left side of the infield. He could eventually be a plus defender, though right now he mixes in making the spectacular play with losing concentration and making needless errors on routine plays.

Brito will play all of the 2019 season at age 19, so there's plenty of time for his production to catch up to his potential. If it all clicks, he eventually could be a solid every day second baseman in the big leagues.
