Number 23

Ezequiel Pagan

Age: 23 Years Old

Level: High-A South Bend, AA Tennessee

Joined the organization via: 13th Round Pick of 2018 Draft

2023 Stats: 437 PA .298/.378/.401 5 HR, 27 XBH, 12/22 SB, 68 RBI, 59 R

Pagan was a nice surprise last season. His slugging was down a bit from his 2022 season but he continued to put the bat on the ball and much like Bateman could find himself fulfilling a valuable role for a team that needs a guy at the bottom of the order or a pinch-hitter coming off of the bench. 

You’d love to see a bit more pop in the bat, even if it just came in the form of doubles rather than homers, but hopefully, we’ll see more of that when he gets a full season in AA in 2024.
