Signed as an international free agent in 2012 out of the Dominican Republic for $540,000. Pujols displays a plethora of enticing raw tools, and the in-game skill set is inching closer to actualizing. He's more than capable of playing RF and the bat has impact ability. There is risk involved due to his limited professional experience along with the aggressive and pull-happy approach.
