Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 55 | Power: 30 | Run: 55 | Arm: 60 | Field: 55 | Overall: 45

Signed for $49,000 out of Venezuela in 2012, Estrada finally had a breakthrough season five years later, when he challenged for the Double-A Eastern League batting title, hit .407 in the EL playoffs and ranked as the Arizona Fall League's best shortstop prospect. But 2018 became a lost year after he was shot in the right hip during a robbery attempt in Venezuela in January. He played in just 18 games before getting shut down with a back injury, then wasn't as dynamic in his return to the AFL.

Estrada's best asset is his defensive versatility, which could lead to a utility role in New York. He's a legitimate shortstop with the actions, instincts and arm to make all the plays. He also has looked more than capable during stints at second and third base, and he has the athleticism to play the outfield in needed.

Though Estrada has controlled the strike zone and made repeated line-drive contact throughout his career, he doesn't have a lot of offensive upside. He doesn't provide much power with his flat right-handed stroke and rarely walks because he puts the ball in play so easily. He has solid speed but doesn't show much aptitude for basestealing.
