Scouting Report

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

The Cardinals signed Arozarena for $1.25 million in July 2016, after the Cuban outfielder ranked as MLB Pipeline's No. 19 international prospect in his class. He reached Double-A in his first full season the following year, showing loud tools but also unrefined skills that underscored his room for improvement, and that trend continued in 2018 as he bounced between Double- and Triple-A. In 2019, however, Arozarena's impressive tools finally translated to on-field production, and the 24-year-old outfielder made his big league debut in August after a more consistent showing in the upper Minors. He ultimately batted .300 over parts of 20 games with St. Louis, only to be traded to the Rays along with Jose Martinez in the early 2020 trade that netted the Cardinals 2018 first-rounder Matt Liberatore.

With a quick bat and aggressive approach, Arozarena has no problems making consistent contact from the right side of the plate. The quality of said contact was considerably better in 2019, as Arozarena hit fewer ground balls, improved his fly-ball rate and showed greater aptitude for hitting to all fields en route to career highs in average (.344), home runs (15) and slugging (.571). Some evaluators believe Arozarena will tap into even more power, albeit mostly to his pull-side, in the coming years as he continues to tighten his approach, and the fact that he trimmed his strikeout rate by nearly three percent last season was a step in the right direction.

Arozarena is an above-average runner who is aggressive on the basepaths, often to a fault. Those wheels also enable him the ability to play all three spots, although he's a cleaner fit at the corners and has the necessary arm strength for right field. And while he currently profiles as more of bench outfielder, Arozarena also possesses more untapped potential than most players entering their age-25 season, with some evaluators viewing him as an everyday player if it all clicks.
