Number 29 

Leonel Espinoza OF

Age: 20 Years Old

Level: Rookie Ball/Low-A Myrtle Beach

Joined the organization via: IFA Signing in 2018

2023 Stats: 200 PA .301/.382/.415 2 HR, 14 XBH, 13/19 SB, 21 RBI, 31 R

Espinoza had a rough go of it at Myrtle Beach this year but at Rookie Ball and this fall, he ripped the cover off of the baseball. In 33 games at the Rookie-level, he hit .339/.420/.446 and in his brief three-game stint in the Dominican Summer League, he hit both of his homers and stole three bases in just 10 at-bats. 

This is an extremely volatile ranking, but if he can pick up where he left off and get out of the gates hot at Myrtle Beach in 2024 he could be an extremely interesting power/speed outfielder with a little more filling out to do in his 6 '0 frame.
