Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 50 | Run: 60 | Arm: 50 | Field: 50 | Overall: 40

Signed out of the Dominican Republic back in November 2014, it's taken some time for Bautista to translate his raw ability into production on the field. He spent two summers in the Dominican Summer League after signing and then made his United States debut in the rookie-level Arizona League in 2017. He might have started to figure some things out with a move to the Pioneer League in 2018, when he finished ninth in the rookie-level circuit in slugging percentage and OPS.

A premium athlete, Bautista has long shown a feel to hit, posting batting averages over .300 for three summers running. He makes consistent contact, doesn't strike out much and even will draw some walks. The biggest difference in 2018 is that he started adding strength which helped him impact the ball more and tap into his raw power with some legitimate extra-base ability. A plus runner, Bautista's speed should allow him to steal bases and play center field for a long time.

Reds player development people say Bautista reminds them a bit of Jose Siri at the same age, but with a bit more consistency to his game. If that continues as he approaches full-season leagues, he could make a huge jump up this list.
