Roderick Arias is considered by those in charge of analyzing youth talent in the international market as the best prospect for 2022 that is available to MLB teams.
This young man is 17 years old and hails from the Dominican Republic, specifically from San Pedro de Macorís. This town is one of the best players’ hotbeds in Quisqueya.
Although nothing is official yet, prospect Roderick Arias could receive a bonus of at least $ 4 million. He is considered a five-tool player with outstanding qualities in hitting and defense. In fact, the evaluators of the majors rate it globally with 55 on a scale of 80.
Scouts say the best thing about Roderick Arias is his hitting ability. He can be a contact slugger and possesses occasional power. He also has quite a bit of speed, something that could match his offense in his professional years.
The defense is also a strong point, although the outstanding thing in this aspect is the power of his arm.
The trainers Daniel Paulino and Luis Schecker were in charge of preparing Roderick Arias for the international market signature process. This pair of scouts are included in the coaches sponsorship program that the MLB maintains in the Dominican Republic.
