2019 High 50 Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 40 Wide, balanced stance, quick, simple load, toe tap; plus bat speed; poor spin recognition at present, room for projection
Power 30 Line-drive power to all fields, does not produce fly ball trajectory; power will come to gaps, speed to create extra bases
Baserunning/Speed 80 Easy, fluid runner, top-of-scale speed; 3.93 home-to-first, quick acceleration; currently plays down on the bases, learning to read pitchers
Glove 50 Plus range, efficient reads and routes; speed and arm will allow him to stick in centerfield
Arm 60 Plus raw arm strength, excellent velocity and carry; usually accurate, can become aggressive in decision-making

With 80-grade speed and a plus arm, the floor for Azocar is high. He projects for utility at all three outfield positions, though given his lack of power the ceiling of a major-league regular will be dependent on the continued development of his hit tool.
